Islanders should get break on ferry fares
As a relative newcomer to the B.C. political scene, I wonder if one of the political parties could take a serious look at B.C. Ferries and have it give Islanders some sort of break on fares. As a resident and taxpayer of Vancouver Island, I think that we should be given a discount on our fares or, at the very least, one or two free passages per year.
Our use of the ferry system is often not a matter of choice but of necessity, so perhaps some consideration could be given to the notion that we, through our tax dollars, have already paid a portion of our fare. Len Dafoe Nanoose Bay
