From the BC Ferries website:

“About our Company

In April 2003, BC Ferries was transformed from a Crown corporation into an independent, commercial organization under the Company Act. BC Ferries is governed by an independent Board of Directors appointed by the B.C. Ferry Authority.

...

About our Governance

B.C. Ferry Authority is a no-share-capital corporation created under the Coastal Ferry Act (British Columbia). It is the owner of the single issued voting share of British Columbia Ferry Services Inc. ("BC Ferries"), a Company incorporated in British Columbia, which is subject to the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia).“

Weird, it doesn't operate like a non-profit.  Well, I guess I'll have to amend my "profit center" comment to "generate capital for reinvestment to maximize additional capital for additional future investment and bonuses for management..." maybe?

BC Ferries doesn't offer it's top-level management bonuses anymore. They got roasted in the media back in 2013, and I believe that bonus program was shut down after the subsequent review that was ordered by Todd Stone. One of the reasons their whole governance structure was overhauled was because of the skyrocketing management salaries in the David Hahn days (when he was pulling in over $1 million a year). Now their CEO salary is under $600,000 including benefits, pension, etc.

 

People rail on the financial operations of BC Ferries a lot, but they are actually pretty solid these days from what I've seen.

Not to mention the executive wing has been pared way, way down; back in the day they had 8-9 senior VP's under the CEO; last time I looked they had three.

Now if only ICBC would do the same... they're raising rates AND paying massive bonuses to execs.

Coastal Celebration is currently involved in a marine rescue off the coast of Swartz Bay between Portland and Sidney islands. A vessel with a single occupant aboard is taking on water. The Coast Guard is responding as well.

An individual has been rescued. Looks like the 7PM departure to Tsawwassen will be delayed.
