...The mayor is also looking for any infrastructure money that could be used to improve the Belleville Terminal, "we don't expect to see a tiny little line item that says 'Belleville Terminal' in the federal budget but we do expect that we should see some funding coming out of this budget for the terminal."...

I wouldn't hold your breath Lisa. I don't think Justin looked too kindly on your active promotion of pot shops in direct opposition to federal legislation.

Clipper is establishing a year-round passenger ferry service between Vancouver Harbour and Victoria Harbour.

It is anticipated that the operating schedule will require that successful applicants for this position will work a split shift involving 12 hours work with a 3 hour rest period in Victoria between shifts. Clipper will provide a rest location. The vessel will return to Vancouver each evening.

The weekly hours of work will likely vary between 36 and no more than 48 hours per week. It is likely that Clipper will seek approval of an hours of work averaging agreement compliant with the Canada Labour Code.

 

 

 
Job postings are up....
 
 
Chief Engineer, Chief Mate and Master for their Vancouver run.
 
So if you guessed they would need an hour to start the day before they set off... and 15 minutes at end the day to turn it off...
 
You might guess on a schedule like this:
 
7am shift starts
8am leaves Vancouver
 > > Victoria
3 hour Victoria crew rest
4pm leaves Victoria

(With VIDEOS) No turning back: The 'Halunder Jet' has the Clipper Vacations Union Jack painted on the side, and it's headed for Victoria now, to help commence a new Victoria-Vancouver run in 2018

That might have been a little boo boo along the way.

Der erste Versuch am Dienstag hatte wegen zu schlechter Wetterbedingungen sogar abgesagt werden müssen. Der "Halunder Jet" soll künftig zwischen Vancouver und Victoria eingesetzt werden.

Probably, but they should call it the "Salish Clipper" just to mess with BC Ferries.

They renamed one the San Juan Clipper, but only because it does not come here anymore.

I knew an old guy once that called his false teeth his China Clippers.

Ferry routes to Vancouver Island could soon run from the SeaBus terminal at Waterfront Station in downtown Vancouver, but they will not be operated by TransLink.

The public transit authority has been seeking interest from private passenger-only ferry and water taxi operators to launch new services from the SeaBus terminal to Victoria, Nanaimo, and the Sunshine Coast.

 

TransLink spokesperson Jill Drews told Daily Hive the private operators would pay for the required terminal renovations to accommodate the new route operations. The new operators would use the unused outside berth of the terminal.

This is in addition to the ongoing $12.5-million project that will retrofit the roof and exterior cladding of both SeaBus terminals at Waterfront and Lonsdale Quay.

“The private ferry and water taxi services will be supplemental to, and are not meant to replace, BC Ferries services,” she said. “These services are meant to offer users flexible and vehicle-free travel options.”

Such operations could increase TransLink’s revenues through the sale of transit tickets to passengers using the services. Passengers of the private ferry services will be required to pass through TransLink’s fare paid zone and carry valid proof of fare.

 

 

That's from October this year.

I'm pleased to report that the Palabora, carrying the Halunder Jet, is now mating with the Cristobal Trader, a "bunkering tanker" just west of the Panama Canal.
