Caribou, N.S. to Wood Islands, P.E.I.

WOOD ISLANDS — Today’s 4:30 p.m. crossing was the last of the 2013 seaon for Northumberland Ferries Limited.

Vice-president Danny Bartlett says early ice conditions and the expected poor weather over the next several days resulted in the carferry service ending a little bit early.

Service would have normally continued until Dec. 20.

The service operates between here and Caribou, N.S.

    Do you have a clue? They don't have icebreakers. There is ice in Wood Islands and Caribou harbours. They have a contract to operate these government ferries - yes. The contract also stipulates that the ships cannot be damaged by negligent operation. This was a very good call by NFL.

    Couldn't they be sued for non-delivery of promised services?
