Ferry isn't free

To the Editor,

Re: B.C. Ferries employees shouldn’t sail for free, Letters, Nov. 28.

There is a lot of complaining being done about B.C. Ferry employees having free travel benefits. What is never mentioned is that these free travel benefits are a taxable benefit under Revenue Canada taxation legislation.  All employees pay income tax on these benefits.

Enough propaganda. Check out the facts before giving an opinion.
