Monday’s snowstorm with its strong winds also impacted sailings on smaller routes.
BC Ferries apologized in a message posted on its website, adding that does not take the decision to cancel sailings lightly, “as we know customers rely on us to get to their destinations.”
BC Ferries promised that service would resume on impacted routes as soon as safely possible.
