UBCM Submission to Ferries Review

Earlier today, UBCM met with Mr. Blair Redlin, Special Advisor to the Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, who is conducting a comprehensive operating review of coastal ferry services in BC. UBCM’s submission is reflective of the policy positions adopted by the membership through its resolutions process and 2014 socio-economic impact analysis of BC Ferries. 

The scope of issues covered include: ferry fares, service levels, long-term planning, fleet development, ancillary issues related to ferry operations and communications amongst local governments and ferry stakeholders such as BC Ferries, Ferry Advisory Committees, Ferry Commissioner and the Province.

Mr. Redlin is expected to report to the Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure with the results of his review by June 30, 2018.
