B.C. Ferries at fault for loading problem

To the Editor,

How come other media covered this story, but not the News Bulletin? Are you receiving a benefit from B.C. Ferries to supress negative stories? Or maybe you didn't think it was important that 100 cars and their passengers were loaded out of sequence, resulting in them missing their rightful scheduled departure.

A corporation spokeswoman claims it was a rare occurrence, obviously she hasn't travelled the same ferries I have. Who can forget the B.C. Day fiasco at Duke Point several years ago when B.C. Ferries oversold the last ferry by some 70 cars, stranding passengers overnight, then to add insult to injury, locked up the Duke Point facilities.

In both cases and others, how many people will have warm and fuzzy feelings about Nanaimo, and want to return having to deal with B.C. Ferries?

And how many paying customers were denied boarding because of B.C. Ferries employees exercising their free passage on the Queen of Entitlement?
