HALIFAX, N.S. — Nova Scotia legislature unanimously supported a resolution that calls for continued assistance to the Cape Breton & Central Nova Scotia Railway, the Cape Breton Post (N.S.) has reported. The RailAmerica-owned short line has notified the province it wants the $2 million annual provincial subsidy it's received since 2005 extended for another five years.

"The people of Cape Breton deserve answers from this government on what to expect when it comes to the future" of the railroad, said member of legislative assembly Cecil Clarke, who introduced the resolution.
