Oh, those kids! They're hot on the heels of their massive success pooning the Trump Tulsa rally.

There ain't no million people who want to go to Vancouver Island. Hell, if you threw open the Confederation Bridge today, you wouldn't get a million vehicles, bikes or hikers going to Green Gables.

Let me know when a million people can think of a reason to go to Oklahoma.

It's not exactly the South of France or Spain. And the tea is a thousand times worse in Tulsa than Toledo.

Wow that's my neck of the woods.

BC Ferries is usually pretty straight-lipped about things. This is the first time I recall them ever casting shade on anyone. So it's pretty momentous.

They must have hired a new social media manager or something.

BC Ferries charges about $20 for a reservation and you lose your slot if you don't show up within 30 minutes of the sailing time, so they would be quite happy if this had actually happened.

"Don't pay the ferryman, until he gets you to the other side"


I needed to watch this video a very long time ago. I played the first visual version of the video game Zork. At one point you have to go to an island by ferry. I was able to do that and then did everything on the island. Then I could not leave. The secret was to show the ferryman that you could pay but not give him the coin until you went back. I was very pissed. I found a walk through and printed it out. (BBS days). Then I just followed the guide to finish the game.

No joke.  People in Southeast are having a hard time as it is.  I can't imagine what the next year is going to look like.

One stop on a multi-stop ferry will never give you the full use rate. You might see 30 cars get off st this same dock when it pulls in.

I use BC ferries. Those people just missed the previous one.

During Covid the did reduce service as needed but nothing like you implied.

Well I can't speak to the number of ferry visitors to Vancouver Island, but Vancouver itself apparently used to do pretty well for itself.

I may be a little biased, but I've been all over Canada. Vancouver Island is basically the best we've got. There's some nice spots up north in the Rockies where there is no civilization at all, Nova Scotia is a lovely hike, and Niagara Falls makes a lovely scene, but Van Isle is the best. It's why I live there and am underemployed.

That being said, BC Ferries is not overbooked. They've cut sailings for Covid 19 and they're actually struggling a bit. (My job has me interacting with BC Ferries workers daily.)

And the thing I don't get about Trump afraid to ruin a silk tie by spilling water on it is, he could stick a straw in the glass or bottle. Sipping from a straw would look a lot less ridiculous than using two hands to powerdrink some water. And even if you need to use two hands to drink, there are more elegant ways to do it:
