Gabriola residents who travel into Nanaimo on any sort of regular basis will know what it’s like when things go wrong with the ferry system. Here’s news from Bowen Island, an island also served by a small ferry: Islander submits invoice for lost time to BC Ferries.
On October 21, BC Ferries received an invoice for $5,747.74 submitted by Maureen Nicholson on behalf of Bowen Island residents who have lost valuable time due to the overload situation and late departures that stem from the replacement of the Queen of Capilano by the smaller Bowen Queen during the Capilano’s annual refit. The document bears the title: Bowen Ferry Victim Impact Invoice and Nicholson has chosen the hourly rate of $41.50 for the 138.5 hours that have been reported lost by 22 travellers on the Bowen Queen in the week of October 15?19. She also states that this is a fraction of the number of people affected. [continue]
Ha! Good luck seeing any of that money.
