NDP Ferries Critic: Southern Gulf Islands service changes could sever vital connections
The NDP Ferries Critic says she’s been hearing legitimate concerns about BC Ferries’ proposed changes to the Southern Gulf Islands service and she’s hoping Ferries has heard them too
Ferries recently wrapped up a survey and a series of open houses. They’ll be using that input to come up with a final proposal later this fall.
North Island MLA Claire Trevena says unless the draft plan is changed, vital connections between Salt Spring, Saturna, Mayne, Galiano and Pender could be severed.
Trevena also says the Transportation Ministry should step in to ensure the economies of the Gulf Islands are protected.
