Reduced BC Ferries schedules are due to be released in the next couple of days.
They’ll put in black and white just what’s going to happen on routes like Langdale and Gabriola when cuts take effect at the end of April. In the meantime, political efforts to get the province to change course continue.
Sunshine Coast Regional District Chair Garry Nohr says it looks for now like the government isn’t going to change its mind.
Nohr was part of a strategy session this week involving local governments and groups like the BC Ferry Coalition and the Powell River-based Fiscal Fairness for Coastal Communities.
He says they’re working on solid economic and financial arguments to see if they can sway the Transportation Minister. Nohr also says they’re looking to gain allies in other parts of the province.
Nohr says they’ll refine their case when Regional District Chairs get together in two weeks during the Association of Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities AGM.
