CBC British Columbia - Premier to meet with rescued ferry passengers
OK. So all 101 crew and passengers were saved from the sinking ferry. This is one of the big BC Ferries -- it runs along the Inside Passage which is a fairly rough route, but the reason given right now for the sinking is that the ferry hit a rock. My guess is that wasn't a brand new rock. So what happened?
The whole fleet is aging, and not in a good way. Most of our ferries were built circa 1970 and have gone through several refits. That said, this is the first time a BC Ferry has sunk, which is pretty good for all the years they've been in service.
