BC ferries is run like YVR when it should be run like BLI (Bellingham airport). We don't need gigantic outdoor screens and outdoor fire places.

The only bit of useful information I took from the infographic...

The CEO of BC Ferries earns a surprisingly low salary given the degree of responsibility, and complexity of the logistics.

From my leather armchair:

BC Ferries is an extension of the highway system and should be treated as such. I don't care about tourists because as a taxpayer in this province, the system should serve my needs first. Get rid of the unions, hire $15/hour lackeys, cut the food service out, and cut fares by 50%. Cut management salaries by 75% and get UBC Sauder grads to run the damn corporation for $60K/year. All you need is a management team of 5 people:
- CEO
- HR
- Sales and promotions
- Fleet maintenance and procurement
- Schedules

I don't drive a BMW, so why should the public have a BMW of a ship? Bare bones is good enough for me. I'll bring my own damn Clif bars and a book for the ride.

And if ships are delayed as a result of the weather or mechanical issues, BC Ferries should issue 50% off vouchers for the week following each incident. I don't care if it costs money. Taxes are already so high here that I, as a working class taxpayer, deserve a break once in a while just because. If only the people running this damn province were as smart as me, we wouldn't be in the mess that we're in today. Common sense means more in the real world than university degrees and business certificates.

Whats so complex? It's not like they are adding new routes or have stiff competition. They pretty much have know competition. They have been doing the exact same thing for the last 20 plus years.

David Hahn was paid $1,137,007 this year
Mike Corrigan was paid $900000 this year

BC Ferries top salary surpassed $1M - British Columbia - CBC News

The logistics involved with operating a fleet of passenger ferries is a monumental task; managing general maintenance and breakdowns without impacting the schedule; regulating a supply of everything from replacement parts to fuel to food; crewing the vessel with people capable of captaining, navigating, and maintaining a ferry, and even doing the menial tasks but with the specific safety certifications required; keeping current passengers happy; attracting new passengers.

I see a lot of similarities between the role of an airline CEO and our ferry CEO; the obvious difference being the lack of competition faced by BC Ferries easing some aspects of the job, but airlines get to pick and choose the routes they operate on where BC Ferries has a fixed set adding a pretty significant challenge. Oh, and most airlines bleed money and often go bankrupt, coincidence?

Or maybe because I have been using it all my life. People on the mainland just don't understand. The ferry system is a part of our roadway just like your bridges are. Going on the ferry is not a vacation or a fun time.

Sailing being dropped is bad news. Last ferry from Tsawwassen is 5:45 P.M. Good luck going on a day trip.

Having fixed routes makes the CEO's job much easier and B.C. ferries does not have to deal with multiple countries. West jet flyes to over 60 destinations. There is a lot of waste on BC ferries that should be cut.

Like, say, the Sea to Sky was for me, when I commuted to Whistler for work everyday?

Commuting to Whistler wasn't a vacation or a fun time, but that didn't keep me from enjoying the beauty that surrounded me on the drive.

It's not that we don't understand, it's that we view the ride through a different, less bitter, perspective.

You're difficult to please, you're saying, you want BC Ferries to continue operating runs at 25% capacity? The waste that you say needs to be cut, like minor upgrades to the ships that cost a few hundred thousand dollars to install but last decades, is nothing compared to the ferry losing thousands of dollars every time it makes a specific run because the capacity is well below the break even point.

Having a fixed set of routes does not make things simpler, it makes things exponentially more difficult. Westjet can drop routes that are not profitable and add routes that are profitable; BC Ferries needs to run the routes with razor thin profit margins or inevitably operate at a loss, because it's an essential service, and just make the best out of the routes that can operate at a profit.

As I recall, they're talking about total sailings, system-wide, I believe on a monthly basis.

The Tsawwassen/Swartz Bay run typically has 9 crossings each way per day (up to 14 when it's busy, like the long weekends). That's 18 regular sailings total right there. Another 8 for Duke Point, 16 more for Horseshoe Bay/Nanaimo. So right there on the major runs, you have 42 sailings *per day*, not counting extra sailings for busy periods. That's AT LEAST 1260 sailings per month... again, JUST on the three major routes.

Then you have 18 sailings per day for Langdale, 32 sailings per day to Bowen Island, 16 per day Earls Cove to Saltery Bay, 8 for Comox to Powell River... there's another 72 *per day* just for the Sunshine Coast, another 2160 in a month.

So yeah, 98 sailings really doesn't mean fuck all in the grand scheme of things. You could eliminate one mid-day mainland/island sailing on each of the major routes and almost hit that mark per month.

Like, maybe... low-traffic sailings?

Yeah, that question has been studied to death. Last version I saw, IIRC, concluded that IF it were technically possible, it would be at least 10 years before it was ready for any traffic, and tolls to pay for it would be in the realm of anywhere from $200 to $800(!!!) each way. Seems to me any direct route from the Lower Mainland was long ago ruled out due to the combinations of water depth, seabed composition, seismic concerns, and accommodation for shipping lanes... the most likely feasible route, based on some discussions I've seen, would be somewhere farther up-island, linking to the Sunshine Coast, probably via Texada Island, linking Qualicum Beach to somewhere north of Sechelt... a route so far out of the way it would be impractical for most travellers.

Or you could Just Fucking Google It: Let me google that for you

The very first link brings you to a Ministry of Transportation and Highways report: A Potential Fixed Link to Vancouver Island - Ministry of Transportation

But hey, keep dreaming that dream... I'm sure someday the technology will be there.

But if there's one bridge I wish they'd bloody build, it'd be across the Finlayson arm. I'd be happy to pay tolls on that.

That's where you build a $500B highway from Squamish across the peninsula. That'll be another $100 toll, thanks.

Not compared to the older ferries. The fast ferries had the worst seats.

This shit reminds me of the Vancouver Sun when they posted their public employee salary search.

Public Sector Salaries - Vancouver Sun

Interesting enough BC Ferries employees aren't searchable for 2010/2011 (I wonder why), but if you search 2009's listing, you will find the highest paid salary in the province was the CEO of BC Ferries, a large portion of the Top 20 were BC Ferries employees.

Can someone explain to me why the hell the top dogs for BC Ferries are paid such high wages when they are basically running a monopoloy with no actual competition to speak of?

Especially the days when you get to see a pod of Orcas swimming past the ferry.

People pay big bucks to go on whale watching boats to see that.
