Gulf Island route best for bridge

To the Editor,

Re: Floating bridge a solution, Letters, April 4.

Michael Mosdell has the right idea to eliminate B.C. Ferries, ease the burden of Vancouver Island citizens and tourists and those trying to move goods on and off the Island.

The best connector – be it a floating bridge or stationary bridge between Vancouver Island and the mainland – would go from Chemainus, to Salt Spring Island, through Bodega Ridge and Dionisio provincial parks on Galiano Island, to Tsawwassen on the mainland.

A floating bridge would be acceptable if there was a pillar in the middle to accommodate sea traffic.

The water mileage would be minimal on this route, with the longest point from Dionisio Park to Tsawwassen.
