Ferries who resigned after the sinking of the Queen of the North is suing the corporation, saying Ferries failed to heed his warnings of a possible catastrophic incident without fleet-wide safety improvements. Darin Bowland filed a writ of summons in B.C. Supreme Court claiming damages for negligent misrepresentation, wrongful dismissal, loss of reputation, as well as aggravated and punitive damages. BC Ferries said the lawsuit is now before the courts. Source: Canadian Press
