BC Ferries A-Go-Go....



Wonder how long it will be before the mellifluous, but never malodorous, Mr. Hahn and his most-mirthful minions mount a million smacker PR campaign in an effort to convince us that it is in our best interest to pay exhorbitant fees for assured non-loading reservations to take future trips that no longer exist on boats that we paid for, but which are no longer, apparently, ours to use when needed (unless, of course, we are offshore tourists with deep pockets and/or the five-ringwormiest super-secret codes):

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) - Starting Wednesday (Oct 14th), B.C. Ferries will reduce the Horseshoe Bay/Departure Bay sailings Monday through Thursday evenings.

Deborah Marshall with the corporation explains it will include the 7 p.m. sailing exiting Departure Bay, and the corresponding 9 p.m. sailing from Horseshoe Bay. "They will continue to operate Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. We're going to put them back in the schedule for the Christmas period and during the Olympics in February."

Of course, this is all about saving money and not strangling service so that others, say truckers who use late night ferries will go looking for an alternative.


Well, maybe....

And then again....



(hang on to ALL your hats!)

Meanwhile, Kevin Falcon has a bonus message for aging British Columbians that no longer take ferries - 'Don't You Dare Get Really, Really Old Or We Will Screw You Too!'
