Remove the Punitive BC Ferries Fuel Surcharge

Whereas BC Ferry Services' operations are integral to the economy and well-being of British Columbians who reside on Vancouver Island and in coastal communities;

And whereas the BC Liberal government and the restructured BC Ferries over the last decade have raised fares to levels that are harmful to the economy and punitive to residents;

And whereas the BC Liberal government and BC Ferries in January 2014 imposed an additional 3.5% fuel surcharge on ferry users;

And whereas in the last six months BC Ferries recorded an operating profit of $90.3 million, of which $10.1 million was derived from the fuel surcharge;

And whereas global energy prices have dropped dramatically in recent months;

We the undersigned do hereby petition the Province of British Columbia and BC Ferry Services Inc. to immediately remove the harmful and punitive fuel surcharge.
