Government has confirmed two new provincial appointees to the BC Ferry Authority board as the board continues its work, as set out in the Coastal Ferry Act, to put an emphasis on the public interest and the needs of the people who rely on ferry services.
Jessica Bowering and David Levi have been appointed by order-in-council to the board until March 31, 2022. Their biographies follow in a backgrounder.
These directors fill roles vacated when previous board members were nominated by the BC Ferry Authority board and then appointed as members of the BC Ferries Services Inc. board.
The BC Ferry Authority is the shareholder of BC Ferries and represents the broader public interest perspective when undertaking its role as the shareholder. This includes working with BC Ferries Services Inc. on issues such as keeping fares affordable and ensuring the public can continue to access safe and reliable transportation to and from coastal communities.
