 A number of ferry sailings between Horseshoe Bay and Nanaimo have been cancelled after a semi truck got stuck on the loading ramp.

 
BC Ferries said the truck was boarding Sunday morning when it got stranded.  The truck got hung up on the ramp while it was loading on the 6:20 a.m. sailing at Horseshoe Bay, said spokeswoman Deborah Marshall.  
 
Six sailings have been cancelled on the busy Sunday travel day, while BC Ferries works to bring in a replacement ferry.
 
According to BC Ferries, they had to wait for the tide to move the truck, which wasn't expected until 7 p.m.
