MLA Gary Coons thinks it’s a bit premature to launch a suit against the government and BC Ferries over losses to local businesses from the sinking of the Queen of the North.
Mr. Coons was commenting on Queen Charlotte resident Jack Greenwood’s call for a class action suit made in the Observer two weeks ago.
“I would rather have islanders first communicate directly with BC Ferries and the government and avoid going to court,” Mr. Coons said.
He urges islanders to start by putting together the room revenue numbers and other pertinent financial information. If the numbers show there was a loss of revenue, the MLA said, “I will take that forward to the government and BCF and get something done.”
