Re: ‘BC Ferries to pilot selling beer and wine on select routes’ (www.pqbnews.com, April 18)
Of all the hare-brained ideas to come out of the BC Ferries this one is the worst.
Drink on the ferry and drive away under the influence?
BC Ferries is part of the Canadian highway system and the law states no one is allowed to drink and drive. Why should an hour-and-a-half of ferry time make it alright to drink?
Anyone who has used the ferry system knows that the traffic off the ferry is like the Indy 500 with people speeding, changing lanes willy nilly, trying to beat everyone else and now someone wants to add alcohol into the mix?
What happened to don’t drink and drive?
If the BC Ferries want to promo B.C. wines then let them sell closed, corked bottles at their arts booths.
Don’t promote drinking and driving and heighten the risks of death on our highways.
