Things are already busy on BC Ferries sailings as people head out for the last long weekend of the summer.

And while some sailings have been overloads, Deborah Marshall of BC Ferries says Labour Day isn’t usually that busy compared to other long weekends.

Marshall says as well as the “back to school” factor, weather will play a big role in whether people decide to travel this weekend.

For most routes this is also the last weekend of the summer schedule; and the number of sailings will be reduced come Tuesday.
