New trucking rules for GM ferry on hold

Trucking companies using the Grand Manan ferry won’t have to abide by a new rule that forces a driver to travel with their vehicles between the island community and the mainland — at least for now.

“We have met with Coastal Transport and they have agreed to allow truckers to continue past practices until a solution can be found,” a Department of Transportation spokesperson stated in an email to CBC News late Tuesday.

“They will be bringing us a proposal to resolve this issue,” the spokesperson said without indicating any time limit.


Swearing-in Ceremony

The swearing-in ceremony was held on May 30th – it was nice to see such a great turn-out from supportive family members and friends.

Congratulations to the returning Mayor and councillors and to all of our new councillors joining us for the up-coming year.
