From CBC News:
Both BC Ferries and TransLink need to be restructured to solve serious accountability and operational issues, according to a new report by Cheryl Wenezenki-Yolland, B.C.’s comptroller general.

Both organizations require a major restructuring at the highest levels to give them more accountability, greater transparency and better oversight, according to the report released Friday morning,

In the report, Wenezenki-Yolland was critical of the retainers paid to the BC Ferries directors, noting compensation they paid themselves was three to five times higher than levels set by the Treasury Board for Crown corporations.

She also found that the role of the BC Ferry Authority and the BC Ferry Commission, which are supposed to oversee BC Ferries, were ineffective in protecting the public interest and needed to be more clearly separated from BC Ferries itself.
