Ferry space at a premium

  • Jun. 8, 2007 4:00 p.m.

Several passengers have had to cancel their ferry reservations this week due to the floods which have closed Highway 16 east of Prince Rupert, says BC Ferries spokesperson Deborah Marshall. However, their empty spots have been filled with supplies coming to the islands via Port Hardy, Ms Marshall said. “Goods are getting through,” she said. BC Ferries is giving refunds to passengers whose travel plans have been affected by the flood, she said. Meanwhile, as of Wednesday (June 6) BC Ferries is keeping space open on the Queen of Prince Rupert and the Northern Adventure for essential freight like groceries and medical supplies, she said. That means some customers may not be able to book space for the next few days, as long as the flood situation lasts.
