TORONTO — Picturesque Peggy’s Cove, N.S., is normally a great place to run a business but restaurant owner John Campbell hopes he can survive the cancellation of cruise ships this season because of COVID-19.

“I’m doing everything I can to survive but there’s a lot of companies that are going to be in big trouble for sure,” he said in an interview.
