The Queen of the North sank after apparently hitting a rock at 12:43 a.m. Its 99 passengers and crew were safely evacuated to lifeboats and picked up within two hours by a Canadian Coast Guard vessel patrolling in the area. The incident took place in Wright Sound, after an 8 p.m. departure from Prince Rupert on the 274 km trip down the Inside Passage to Port Hardy. (Source: Peninsula News Review)
