After conducting engagement sessions in the communities that would be affected by proposed sailing reductions across the coastal ferry service network, the provincial government has recently confirmed a plan to reduce sailings across a number of routes serviced by BC Ferries. BC Ferries will now implement these service adjustments to ensure new route schedules are in effect by April 28, 2014.
BC Ferries is seeking public opinion regarding
schedule options for all of the affected routes.
Anyone interested in recommending a preference for one of the schedule options available for each route they utilize may do so through an online survey that will be made available from February 12 - 21, 2014.
To participate in the survey, please visit and look for the section titled “New Schedule Options”.

Why Bother II

I'll tell you why. Because when you're finished demonstrating on the front lawn of the legislature (which I'm all in favour of) what happens if the Gov't turns a blind eye to all the protests and petitions etc?. What will happen will be that we will lose the 10 pm sailing 7 days a week and the 11pm on the weekends. We now have some alternatives to consider and you owe it to yourself and your neighbours to consider those alternatives. JUST IN CASE!
why bother?

We already told them what we think. They completely ignored every single one of us. Don't tell them again. Just come to Victoria on March 11.
