No Sailing Waits
Author: Adrian Raeside
Riding the ferry is simply part of life on the islands.
Everyone has a tale of sitting in a lineup at B.C. Ferries, trying desperately to get to the other side. Mechanical failures, medical emergencies, sailing waits and the latest “hard landings’ all serve as fodder for the best one-upmanship stories from navigating the coastal ferry system.
So folks will hopefully get a chuckle out of Adrian Raeside’s collection of editorial cartoons harpooning the issues with B.C. Ferries over the years, from labour disputes to the infamous Sunshine Breakfast (which Raeside takes some credit for having discontinued).
Raeside was the editorial cartoonist for the Victoria Times-Colonist for more than 30 years.
Readers should be able to find dozens of cartoons humorously depicting some of the most stressful travel situations on the West Coast.
Perhaps B.C. Ferries would have equally good humour to stock the book in its gift shops – passengers might at least get a laugh while waiting in line for the next ferry.
