Local business owners are concerned about the future of the CAT ferry.

This comes after Premier Tim Houston and Public Works Minister Kim Masland expressed disappointment in passenger numbers.

Masland said cancellation of the service could be an option.

Deb Cameron of Camper’s Haven Campground in Yarmouth says she was shocked to hear those comments.

“They just have to give the ferry a chance, it’s just gotten back on it’s feet after a three-year hiatus. To say something like that, is just devastating,” says Cameron.

She says when the CAT didn’t sail in 2019, her numbers were down 25 percent.

‘It’s a valuable service to the area, and it’s not just me. I’m sure there are a lot of businesses that are feeling the same way.”

Cameron says her numbers are better than expected this year, and the ferry is helping that cause.

Mayor Pam Mood had a similar response, calling Masland’s comments ‘dangerous.’
