The new ferry that will cross the waters of Little Narrows between Inverness County and Victoria County has been named in honour of the late Grand Chief Ben Sylliboy.
A contest held this month by The Department of Public Works asked students from the We'koqma'q Mi'kmaq School and the Rankin School of the Narrows in Iona to think of a suitable new name for the ferry before it begins operation later this spring.
