NDP ferry critic on the sale of the Queen of Chilliwack
The NDP’s ferries critic says there a still a lot of questions about the sale of the Queen of Chilliwack.
The vessel had a $15-million re-fit and then was decommissioned in 2014 after service cuts.
Then the ferry, which ran the central coast route was reportedly sold for less than $2 million.
It turns out the vessel was bought by Fiji shipping company that was started by a former senior BC Ferries employee.
NDP’s deputy ferry critic Gary Holman says the deal doesn’t make any sense.
Holman says users deserve to know more about the business decision that led to the sale.
