Best of Powell River 4: The woebegone BC Ferries
BC Ferries: the boats Sunshine Coasters loves to hate. And with good reason. Especially this summer (ooooh those Saltery Bay line-ups). The Best of Powell River Contest had voters purging their contempt for the Crown Corporation. But it wasn’t all bad. There’s great toast!
Best BC Ferry:
- Snarky comments such as “There is none” and “Ha!”
- MV Island Sky (To lower Sunshine Coast, usually)
- Queen of Burnaby (to Comox, usually)
Best answers: A bridge. A free one. Al’s Water Taxi. The Queen of Suck. The one that’s reached its destination.
Staff notes: Voters noted that ferry workers are awesome; advisory committees formidable. Management, policies and the corporation as a whole, not so much.
Best food on BC Ferries:
- Snarky stuff such as ”Are you kidding me?” and “My packed lunch.”
- White Spot Legendary Burger
- Fries and Gravy
Best answers: M&M’s peanuts. Mentos. Thaidal Zone take out. The hot water for your tea. The little Kraft peanut butter servings. The paper towels. Vending machine Cheesies. Water. Barf.
Staff notes: Someone wrote in “Ferry toast,” and we know exactly what you mean. Crisp, light and flavourful, coated with a juicy salt-fat splurt of butter, and slathered with peanut butter and jam. That’s eating. And at the low, low price of 25 cents per slice, you can’t go wrong.
