How can I help keep BC Ferries' repairs and shipbuilding in BC?

  • Send an email to your BC Member of the Legislative Assembly [MLA] expressing your opposition by using the form below. This website will help you find who your MLA is if you don't know.

Step 1: Find your MLA

Step 2: Address your letter:



I strongly object to BC Ferries' decision to build 3 new Super C-Class ferries worth $542 million in Germany instead of BC.

The loss to the BC economy of 2,000 direct and 3,500 indirect jobs over two years by giving them away to a foreign country makes no sense.

The provincial government should not allow BC Ferries to exclude BC shipyards from the final bidding process for new ferry construction or refit work.

Sincerely yours,
