RE: Foisy vs. BC Ferries (re: the Queen of the North)

If one of your loved ones dies because of negligent actions onboard a British Columbia Ferry, don’t go looking for justice in the province of British Columbia. Unless you are wealthy, you won’t be able to afford Court in B.C.

Because it carries the Vancouver Sun copyright notice I cannot reproduce it here – nor would I wish to as it is not as if it were a Press Release. I have, you may have noticed, been quoting things at length recently, and letting them speak for themselves. In this case I can only trust that you will take the time to read the entire statement. It is extra-ordinarily powerful. And it should have massive political remifications.
