Sunken B.C. Ferry Crew Members Face Uncertainty

Monday, June 05, 2006
According to the AP, B.C. Ferries says it will suspend and possibly fire a handful of crew members who were working on the Queen of the North the night it sank if they don't take part into an investigation into the sinking. The report indicated that CEO David Hahn told Canadian Press that less than four crew members have refused to answer questions in the investigation. Hahn refused to say whether the crew members are critical to the investigation or include the two who were in the wheelhouse at the time of the crash. The ferry ran into Gil Island in Wright Sound and sank March 22nd. It carried 101 people and two people died. B.C. Ferry and Marine Workers Union president Jackie Miller says 10 to 12 crew members who were on the ferry that night have been assigned legal counsel and been advised not to speak to B.C. Ferries. Miller says that if the members are fired, the union will take some form of action. The Transportation Safety Board, Transport Canada, B.C. Ferries and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police are investigating the sinking. Source: AP
