Partridge Island & Digby Ferry Mentioned In Federal Budget

Regarding the federal budget unveiled yesterday, Saint John MP Rodney Weston says it's pretty impressive that out of 308 ridings in Canada, Saint John got not one, but several, mentions.

One of those nods is $200,000 earmarked for a feasibility study to look into repairing the Partridge Island breakwater and restore access to the island.

Weston points out the budget outlined a two year agreement for continuing the Digby Ferry service, and also mentioned New Brunswick's role in the future of the proposed Energy East Pipeline.
