Dear SIPOA members,
SIPOA will be making a short presentation to the BC Ferry Commissioner in respect of his review of the Coastal Ferry Act on October 1, 2011. Our intent is to provide feedback that looks to finding prospective solutions for the BC Ferry Commissioner to pursue as opposed to rehashing a complaint list.
The Aug 31, 2011 LTC meeting was an extended session that ran from 12:30 pm until 6 pm. This meeting was well attended, particularly through the Community Information and the Public Hearing sections on proposed Bylaw 104 that were scheduled as the first main items. These sessions ran past 4 pm.
Ron Hall, on behalf of SIPOA gave a presentation [see below], as a delegation, providing a summary of the letter that SIPOA had submitted on August 17th, commenting on Bylaw 104.

Visioning the schedule…. In early July Southern Gulf Island ferry advisory committee representatives will meet with Saltspring Island reps to discuss ideas about scheduling for both route 9 (that’s the mainland) and route 5. The SSIFAC has been working on some possible schedules and this is the other islands’ first chance to see what they've achieved and add their input.
