Blustery weather plays havoc with BC Ferries schedule

The Queen of Prince Rupert has only been back on its regular run for a week now, but Mother Nature seems to have other plans for residents of the Islands and North coast to connect.

The Sunday night sailing of the vessel has been pushed back at least three hours, with a new departure time from Prince Rupert of 3:30 Monday morning, as the vessel has experienced some weather delays over the last twenty four hours, turning its schedule upside down in the process.

BC Ferries has updated information available on their website, from the site this service notice for Sunday night/Monday morning...
