Local political leaders, friends, family, community members, and extended guests gathered along the shoreline of Little Narrows Monday afternoon to officially launch the brand new ferry named after the late Mi’kmaq Grand Chief Ben Sylliboy.
The lieutenant governor of Nova Scotia and officials from the Department of Public Works were on hand at the week’s event to honour the man who was known to be a well-respected leader to the Mi’kmaq people and a friend to anyone who knew him.
