British Columbians still have time to share their input for a vision on coastal ferry services, following the launch of a public engagement in February 2020.
A questionnaire is open for public feedback until March 20 at 4 p.m. (Pacific time) and can be found online: https://engage.gov.bc.ca/coastalferries
The development of a vision was one of the recommendations made by Blair Redlin, who conducted an independent review of coastal ferry services in 2018.
Following the close of the survey, the results will inform the development of a provincial vision to guide the future of British Columbia’s coastal ferry service.
Four themes emerged following stakeholder engagement in October and November 2019:
- support efficient end-to-end travel of people and goods;
- be equitable and accessible;
- mitigate and be responsive to climate change; and
- reflect the values of coastal communities.
