Efforts to fight ferry fare increase are continuing on a number of fronts.

The ad hoc Bowen Island Ferry Fares Strategy Committee met this week to plot strategies for fighting the increases and has called a public meeting for the next week to continue the process. The meeting is set for next Wednesday, Dec 3 and will report on the committee's current strategies and solicit community input on additional strategies to roll back the recent Ferry fare increase. The meeting is set for 7.30 p.m.at the Bowen Legion.

Meanwhile, members of the Transportation Advisory Committee are scheduled to meet Dan Miller, minister responsible for B.C. Ferries next week to air islanders concerns about the ferry fare increases.
