Deer Island Will Get A New Ferry

A Saint John company is partnering with the Province to build a new 24 car ferry for Deer Island to replace the John E. Rigby next spring.

Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Claude Williams is happy the work will be done in the province by Custom Fabricators and Machinists.

Williams adds the deal with CFM will include other provincial suppliers up north stimulating economic activity.

The project will create work for about 35 full-time skilled tradespeople at CFM.
