Speaking of sinking boats, anyone hear tell of the Orlova lately? Anyone care? We watched an oil company tow an environmental disaster away from their rig, then drop the line and let her drift on to wherever she sank......and no one here give's a rat's arse. Gene Poole doesn't even know that little "Newfie Joke".

I hope the cause of the ferry grounding will stay on your radar. For this to happen in the middle of the busy season is shocking.

Yup...if this was a BC ferry on just one of its puddle-jumper routes, this would be a major news story, people would be sacked, investigations would be ongoing, inquiries would be called, politicians would be opining, the public would be protesting, and a complete review of the operations would begin in earnest. Here? Business as usual....well, other than that some actual 'important' people --- tourists --- were inconvenienced.
