IF people cannot be responsible enough to listen, then action needs to be taken.
Ninety plus capacity on the ferries tells me one thing --- many of those on them – at least 50% are being total selfish and self-centred, and that their needs are more important than those of everyone around them.
That being the case, it's a shame that those at the ferry terminal aren't being checked to see where they're going, and why. If there isn’t a good reason why they should be boarding, they should be turned around by RCMP.
Over the Easter long weekend, British Columbians are asked to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by avoiding all non-essential travel, staying home and finding virtual ways to connect and celebrate with family and friends.
“This holiday weekend is not the time for travel, unless absolutely necessary. Rather, let’s make it an ‘unwind and be kind’ weekend at home. There are lots of things we can do to relax, have fun and connect with family, friends and our local community at a safe distance”.
“ … a typical long weekend is something we look forward to throughout the year. It’s a chance to spend a little extra time with our loved ones, often in gatherings or on trips out of town. This long weekend is different … a global pandemic puts us all at risk – and we all must stay home …
“I don’t think people know what staying home means, all kinds of Albertans pulling trailers coming through Salmon Arm. I just don’t get it.”
It's not too late for this weekend -- if people cannot be responsible enough to listen, then action needs to be taken.
Turn people away at BC Ferry terminals IF they are not boarding them for good reason – and set up a road-check at the BC Alberta border to do the same thing.
