Members of the East Shore Kootenay Lake community (Area A in the Regional District of Central Kootenay) boarded the Osprey 2000 to present a request that the MLA for their area, Brittny Anderson, strongly and urgently advocate at legislature for the ferry schedule to be extended with earlier and later sailings and for the Ferry Advisory Committee be reinstated.

The small community working group has received over 600 petition signatures and over 90 letters since August in support of earlier and later sailings for various important reasons. The Advisory Committee is an important component to efficient communication regarding issues that concern the ferry and surrounding communities. Further information can be found at and “We urgently need a reliable and accessible ferry service.”
