Extra sailings are being added to BC Ferries this weekend.

Spokesperson Deborah Marshall says it’s because of where Remembrance Day falls this year. She says a lot of users will have a long weekend – and may use that to go away on a trip.

The extra sailings are between Horseshoe Bay and Departure Bay and Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay. Marshall notes that Ferries flags will be flying at half-mast and a moment of silence will take place at 11 AM Friday morning.
