Transport Minister François Bonnardel cancelled a pair of decrees issued by the former Liberal government that gave the go-ahead to replace an ageing vessel in the fleet that provides ferry service to the Magdalen Islands.

The decrees permitted the company CTMA that runs that ferry service to issue an international call for tenders to replace the 1973-built CTMA VACANCIER. Now everything has to be restarted from scratch.
