capacity for dialysis patients in Pictou County. Mayor Danny MacGillivray is also the head of CHAD Transit. He says that there are many clients that use CHAD three times a week to have dialysis done in Truro, Antigonish, and even Halifax because of the lack of space here, and those frequent round trips are a big expense.

MacGillivray says that CHAD Transit does have a reserve fund that it’s able to draw on, but the costs are not sustainable in the long term.
