To the Editor, Times Colonist
Re: “Islands Trust at fault for high fares, Ferries says

Dear Editor:
The Islands Trust will not be the scapegoat for BC Ferries’ fare increases or loss of ridership. The Islands Trust is celebrating 35 years of fulfilling a provincial mandate to preserve and protect the Gulf Islands for all British Columbians. BC Ferries has a provincial mandate to provide transportation for those islands. We are doing our job, working to sustain complete communities on our islands despite complex external pressures. We would like BC Ferries top executives to do their job, and take the time to understand our communities before they blame fare increases on our locally elected representatives.
