BC Ferries cancel last round-trips of the day due to expected snowfall

Round trips between Victoria, Nanaimo and Vancouver cancelled for tonight

Although most of BC Ferries’ service have been running relatively unscathed in the recent swath of winter weather, they announced a slew of cancellations for tonight in anticipation of heavy snowfall later today.

Ferries from Salt Spring Island to Swartz Bay are currently cancelled as BC Ferries say they are unable to access the Fulford Ferry terminal.

BC Ferries also cancelled the last round trips of the day for many routes.

Almost all flights departing Victoria Airport have been cancelled, although Air North, Pacific Coastal Airlines and Island Express have some flights still operating.
