EPEICC Expresses Relief With Announcement
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Montague, PEI – 8 May 2017
The Eastern PEI Chamber of Commerce (EPEICC) today expressed strong support for the announcement of a proposal that completely revamps the ferry service operations between PEI and Nova Scotia to provide long-term support and stability.
“We are very pleased with the announcement today of the Government’s proposal,” said Kier White, President of the EPEICC. “The economy of Southern Kings and Queens is reliant on the ferry service and last year was a wake-up call, highlighting the need for stability and reliability. The potential for a twenty-year contract along with a three year program to phase in new ships would be hugely beneficial to our region. We are encouraged by Northumberland Ferries support for this proposal and look forward to seeing the successful outcome of this process.”
