Some new hope for residents about to lose their ferry services along the Saint John River -- Conservative Leader David Alward is pledging he will restore the services if his party forms the government after next year's provincial election.
Alward making that pledge during a meeting of the Gagetown village council tonight.
The Tory leader tells CHSJ News the ferry services are a vital economic and emergency link for the communities involved.
The Graham government is cutting the Gagetown - Hampstead - and - Belleisle ferries next week as part of its measures to reduce costs.
