I'm sure if we could find a way to charge wind for interfering with business we would


Install turbines and make it work it off.

The new ferries left Romania on Nov. 20 and arrived in Victoria on Jan. 18 via a semi-submersible transport ship, Sunrise. They were kept there while preparations were made to unload and deliver them to Point Hope Maritime.


When the ships are unloaded Friday, Sunrise will partially submerge so the two ships can be floated off and manoeuvred by tug boats to their new destination.


BC Ferries suggests the Esquimalt Lagoon as a viewing point for those who want to witness the rare ferry-moving manoeuvre. The transport will also require the raising of the Johnson Street Bridge – BC Ferries says the public can view that process from the bridge’s pedestrian platform.


The unloading process is expected to take several hours.






perhaps one is going to the esquimalt graving dock and one to the upper harbour?
