New Digby Neck ferry

A ferry will be named in honour of Margaret Davis nearly 200 years after her trek across Nova Scotia.

The Grand Passage ferry at Brier Island has been christened Margaret’s Justice to commemorate the 63 year old widow’s fight to save her home in 1828 from an unscrupulis neighbour. She walked from Brier Island to Halifax to make sure her land was registered in her name.

The $9.3 million ferry will begin service next month.
