It’s the barge

A barge loaded with equipment and freight trucks left Queen Charlotte Friday morning for Prince Rupert, (see photo, right) and will to return early next week, carrying groceries and supplies and ending the shortage on local store shelves.
The barge, hired by BC Ferry Services Inc., is scheduled to leave Rupert for the islands late Monday afternoon or evening, if weather conditions are all right.
