BC Ferries, because they are calling themselves a PRIVATE corporation now, say they don't have to adhere to the Freedom of Information Act, and are refusing to release information about the recent Queen of the North ferry crash. They also won't allow reporters to see safety check information on other BC ferries.
We all know that suppressing information only results in speculations and guesses as to what happened.
Some scenarios can be very wild;
... whispering ...
"Okay, Captain's gone to his cabin to sleep."
"Mmm, c'mere you big hunk officer you."
"Set the autopilot, Babe."
"'Okay ... hey, don't tear my blouse like last time."
"Sorry. Sheez, you're so sexy when you take off your uniform."
"Remove your glasses, Sweetie, there's nothing to see in this dark."
"Oh yes, like that."
"Mmm. Is that ship's engines or my pulse pounding?"
"Gawd yes! YES!"
"I'm coming! I'm cominggggggggggg!"
Clang! CLANG! Buzzz! BUZZZZZZ! RrrrRRRRRrrRRRRRrrrrr! CLANG!
"Wow! That felt like an earthquake! Even on water!"
"Oh my gawd, that was the best yet!"
"Hey, what's that?"
"Didn't you set the ..."
ABANDON SHIP! ABANDON SHIP!
Some seem to be thumbing their noses at the very people who are supposed to OWN these ferries.
Tell us the truth, BC Ferries, and we won't have to make stuff up.
update: Feb 2007 - BC Ferries says there was sex going on when the Queen of the North crashed and sunk.
