The Discovery Coast Circle Tour is one of the major tourism routes in British Columbia, and has been marketed successfully around the world. Without the Discovery Coast ferry there is no Circle Tour. The economies of both Northern Vancouver Island and the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast cannot withstand such an adverse event without significant loss. People, businesses, and communities will all suffer. We urge you to support this campaign.
