Details

WHEREAS BC Ferries has announced its intention to reduce the number of sailings between Prince Rupert and Port Hardy by 20 sailings in 2011 during the peak tourist season, and this will severely reduce the number of visitors who travel through our communities;

AND WHEREAS these changes will also result in dozens of jobs being taken from Prince Rupert and relocated to southern communities and these changes have been made with no meaningful consultation with the communities who will be harshly affected by these changes:

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the NCLGA and UBCM lobby the Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure to have this unilateral proposed route change decision by BC Ferries reversed.
