BC Ferries vs the people of the north

They want to build a new ferry for the Prince Rupert service.
British Columbia shipbuilders have bowed out of the bidding to construct a new ship because they've been told they need to do it by 2008. Far too little time for the job.
Is it political? Gordon Campbell sees BC shipbuilders as a union problem. He's proven time after time that he favours foreigners over British Columbians.
The Fast Cats are sitting in the dock waiting for use. It would be instant and easy to press them into service for the upcoming tourist season's walk-on traffic. Indeed, they might be seen as a tourist attraction themselves.
Is it political? You bet it is.

  1. I walk by the 3 fast cats each morning on my way to work. They're not doing anything and even if they need a tuneup, they're a few hours away and already painted the right colours.

    The fast ferries were a fiasco, but it's time for Victoria to suck it up and buy them back.

  2. They could even lease them short term, I bet the owners would love to get some revenue from them. Because of Campbells politics, the people get shafted.

    If they used the fast cats, then Campbell would be shown as wrong,it will never happen.
