Lasqueti Ferry Town Hall: What We Heard

As of January 2024, the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure that is responsible for highways and ferries, and BC Ferries that oversees the contract with WPM to operate the Lasqueti Ferry, have not answered the call for a public engagement process.

To ensure Lasqueti voices are captured and heard, MLA Adam Walker, elected Lasqueti Island officials (Andrew Fall, Mikaila Lironi, and Tim Peterson) and the Chair of the Lasqueti Ferry Committee (Shelley Garside) hosted a Town Hall meeting on Lasqueti Island on Saturday, January 27, 2024.

The purpose of the Town Hall was to provide a public forum to hear from the community about their concerns with the Lasqueti Ferry service. Lasqueti residents were invited to provide comments and suggestions in person and online regarding the Lasqueti Island Ferry.

Eighty people attended the town hall meeting, 50 in person and 30 joined virtually.

The attached “What We Heard” report summarizes key themes captured during the public engagement.
