From the Campbell River-Quadra-Cortes Ferry Advisory Committee (CRQC FAC)
Although your Ferry Advisory Committee has not met face-to-face this year it continues to be operational and submits 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 program for one truck per weekday from Cortes to Campbell River has now been endorsed by the FAC and approved by the BC Ferry Corporation and will be implemented very shortly. It will mean that assured loading will be provided for one truck on the 07.50 sailing from Whaletown and the 09.00 sailing from Quathiaski Cove every weekday until Thanksgiving. The return from Campbell River will be on the 11.30/13.05 on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, the 17.25/18.45 on Mondays and the 13.30/15.05 on Fridays. There is also provision for a commercial food supply truck to travel from Campbell River to Whaletown on the 07.30/09.05 sailings and return on the 13.50/15.00 sailings from Whaletown to Campbell River on Wednesdays and Fridays.
Thanks to financial support from the Provincial Government through the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure our current ferry schedule will be maintained as is.
If anyone has ideas that could be considered to improve our ferry services, or comments regarding the service 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.
