Queen of the North

The Queen of the North ferry has sunk.

Off the coast of B.C., one of the big ferries has gone down.

I think that this is the boat that I rode on when I visited the Charlotte's in 2001. I was going the other way of course, north from Port Hardy to Rupert. Our run was an express, there were no stops and it took about 23 hours.

I don't know why the boat went down.

They were certainly used to rough seas — while these boats generally stick to the coast, they do travel in the open ocean.

The latest news implies that two may have died. They are unaccounted for.
