Ferry meets are a farce

Re: “BC Ferry cutbacks need to start at top” Mail, Nov. 22 – 28

The recent writer who worked for BC Ferries for 25 years is owed much gratitude for having the courage to do what someone from the crown corporation had to do: expose their dirty little secret that they hold public consulting town hall meetings before going ahead with what they planned ahead of time. However, it is more than a waste of time and money, it is a complete and deliberate farce! A simple facade to mislead the public into a false sense that they have some influence on  BC Ferries corporate planning.
