  • Mar. 18, 2011 10:00 a.m.

The Minister of Transportation has lived up to her promise of public consultation on BC Ferries and is sending a representative to the islands, says Queen Charlotte mayor Carol Kulesha. Ms Kulesha said Minister Shirley Bond is sending her assistant deputy minister Kevin Richter, who will attend Queen Charlotte’s next council meeting on March 21. The council meeting will be held in the Eric Ross Room at the community hall, and everyone is welcome to attend. “We need people to think how to show what the impacts of higher fares mean today and in the future,” she said. In other BC Ferries news: The Northern Expedition is set to serve both the Skidegate to Prince Rupert route and the Inside Passage to Port Hardy during the fall/winter/spring of 2011/2012. “We should be seeing her in October of this year,” Ms Kulesha said. She explained that BC Ferries had to finish docks along the Inside Passage Route in order to make her able to hit all the ports of call.
