Ferry Consultation Meeting well attended ~

Thank you all who came out to the Open House on BC Ferries last night at Forbes Hall.  We had about 65 people sign in, and maybe a couple more that we missed.  So a good turn out by any standards.  The Q&A session went from about 6:15 to 8:05, and was a very lively discussion with many great points made and questions asked by our local residents of the government.  Representing the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure was Kirk Handrahan, Executive Director Marine Branch, along with two assistants.  Judy Kirk of Kirk & Co. facilitated the discussion.  Judy had two assistants as well, who were recording the proceedings and collecting feedback forms.  MLA Doug Routley was also in attendance with his assistant Patty.  He had a number of interesting things to say about ferries and in particular his commitment on behalf of the NDP (if they are elected) to increase government contributions to ferries in order to increase or sustain service, to freeze or reduce fares, and a promise to build ships in BC.

For those of you who took the Feedback Forms home with you, please mail them to:

PO Box 2223 Vancouver Main, Vancouver, BC V6B 3W2 

Or email coastalferriesengagement@gov.bc.ca

Or click here to fill out the feedback form online.

If you would like to talk to someone, phone: 1-855-387-7882

A comment on that…all submissions will be processed, whether you tick all the correct boxes or not…comments are greatly encouraged and written submissions even more so.  As an example I will be sending my introductory comments in as a written submission.

Thanks again Thetis Island,

Keith Rush
