Denman cable ferry still worries islanders

Dear editor,

I'm writing in response to Mr. Corrigan's letter (Record, Sept. 24) regarding the proposed cable ferry to Denman Island.

Dear editor,

I’m writing in response to Mr. Corrigan’s letter (Record, Sept. 24) regarding the proposed cable ferry to Denman Island.

There are huge concerns  with this project. Financial, technical, social economical, weather, and safety are only some of the concerns the crew, islanders and the taxpayers of this province should be worried about.

I realize that Transport Canada has the final say with crewing levels but I ask how are three people, maybe four, supposed to fight a car-deck fire, gather 150 passengers to a muster station, launch rescue boats and rafts all at once?

This can’t be done. There will be no licensed officers/crew if BC Ferries gets this approved.

All in all this project is frightening and needs to be stopped.

Charlie Tait,
