    Exclamation BC Ferries - SHUTDOWN

    Well, I am glad I am no longer living on Vancouver Island. BC Ferry Corp. went on strike this week and for the first time in its history has shut down completely. There is no ferry service to or from the Islands.

    I feel for the people who have to travel back and forth especially the truckers, but the dispute is over many issues our government has forced upon the Ferry Corp. It's a tricky situation.

    Why did they go on strike, what happened? Much trouble for the commuters, yikes...

    BC Ferries - SHUTDOWN

    CartDi:

    Mostly job security and wage and benefit cut backs to be imposed on new highers. Generally the Government trying to break the unions here in BC.

    Our Premier (Gordon Campbell) sold us out.
