Denman and Hornby islands residents dressed as pirates Friday and boarded the Quinitsa that BC Ferries runs between Buckley Bay and Denman Island. The 'pirates' were protesting BC Ferries' proposal to replace the vessel with a cable ferry. They were joined by Comox Valley provincial NDP candidate Kassandra Dycke and NDP transportation critic Gary Coons.
