NDP send out an SOS on Ferry Services

The BC NDP is calling on those that use BC Ferries to help them send a message to the provincial government regarding the impact that upcoming cuts to service will have on their day to day lives.

They have launched the BC Ferries SOS project, which will have British Columbians send them a note outlining how they depend on the ferry service and how the cuts will affect them personally as well as how it will impact on their region economically.

A dialogue page has been set up by the opposition party, which provides for an online process to register concern over the Ferry cuts ahead. The NDP is offering British Columbians the opportunity to register their comments here.

North Coast NDP MLA Jennifer Rice relayed the call to action through her twitter feed this week.

More on the NDP initiative can be found from BCNDP caucus page dedicated to the project,

BC Ferries announced a wide range of ferry service cutbacks in November with changes set to affect both the Haida Gwaii-Prince Rupert run and the trip from Prince Rupert to Port Hardy, you can learn more about those plans here.

We have more items of note on BC Ferries on our Transportation Archive page
