Last week I had the opportunity to ask the Minister of Transportation about our ferry system. We covered a wide range of issues from affordability to the contracts for building new ferries, and upgrading existing ferries in Poland.
Perhaps the most enlightening moment came when the minister said he wasn’t actually responsible for BC Ferries. That could explain the mess that our marine highway is in at present.
There is no question that we need to make sure that our ferry-reliant communities are served effectively. That is not happening and the minister gave no plan for how it will happen in the foreseeable future.
As always I look forward to hearing from you and discussing ways to make our ferry system work for all who rely on it.
