All Ferry Advisory Committee meetings scheduled for May of this year have, of course, been cancelled and will be hopefully re-scheduled in the fall. In the meantime your Ferry Advisory Committee continues to submit ideas and feedback to the BC Ferry Corporation.
A request was presented to the Committee last year by the grocery stores on Cortes Island for an “assured loading” program for their re-supply trucks. The request is for one truck per weekday from Cortes to Campbell River on the 07.50/09.00 sailings and return from Campbell River on the 12.00/13.05 to Whaletown. Assured loading is also requested for a commercial food supply truck to travel from Campbell River to Whaletown on the 08.30/09.05 sailings and return on the 15.50/17.00 sailings from Whaletown to Campbell River on Wednesdays and Fridays.
We are also considering a request to ensure that medical samples collected from Quadra and islands not served by ferries are able to reach the laboratory in Campbell River in a timely manner. Long delays can spoil the samples.
We have been advised that our current ferry schedules will be maintained for the time being.
If anybody wishes to comment on any of the requests or have other ideas that could be considered to improve our ferry services, please feel free to contact the FAC Chair, Michael Lynch or any other member of the FAC from Quadra or Cortes islands.
Stay safe during these trying times.
Chair, CRQC FAC Committee.
