Folly sinking ferry system

Dear Editor: After a billion dollars needlessly wasted and decades of incompetence in management, the B.C. Ferry fiasco has hit a brick wall (BC Ferries May Slash Horseshoe Bay Sailings, Aug. 30, nsnews.com).

Dear Editor:

After a billion dollars needlessly wasted and decades of incompetence in management, the B.C. Ferry fiasco has hit a brick wall (BC Ferries May Slash Horseshoe Bay Sailings, Aug. 30, nsnews.com).

Now the transportation system is going to unravel in red ink, and many B.C. residents will be stranded until a worthy bureaucrat determines they can leave their island. Four hundred sailings are to be cut.

Most people have no concept of the amount of waste that occurred to get to this stage. The B.C. government has failed its electorate. It put people in charge who had no experience in ferries. B.C. doesn't need cruise liners; it needs water roads.

Land lubbers, take note: It will soon be your turn to hit the wall.

The Port Mann Bridge will be completed in a year or two, and it will have a toll. Every alternative route will also have a toll. You will have no freedom to move within your own land.
