I’ve written stories about the Nova Star in the past without opinion but now, after continuous bailouts and lackluster ticket sales it’s time I feel I need to say something on this subject.
We have forward movement regarding news on the ferry from Portland Maine to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. Assuming the US government gives the OK, the Nova Star can start selling tickets as early as one week from today! The company that sails the ferry will receive their “Certificate of Performance” within a few days and then they will be good to go as a business.
More and more details are coming out about the new "ferry," 'Nova Star' from Portland, Maine to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. I use the term "ferry" because that’s what it is being referred to as, but really it’s more like a cruise liner.
The ongoing saga regarding ferry service between Maine and Nova Scotia continues. The Nova Scotia provincial government said they’d support the venture if a bid came across the desk that Nova Scotia Premier Darrell Dexter liked.
I’ve been going through the news articles looking for something to write about and to some degree have had writer's block until now. It is has been a very sad news day in Maine. There have been a number of stories with horrific endings.
