The 8:15 Duke Point-Tsaw sailing returned to port in Nanaimo last night due to a medical emergency. The sailing was delayed by two hours.

B.C. Ferries is eyeing the ­Canada Infrastructure Bank as a potential lender to help finance an upcoming ­billion-dollar-plus major-vessel-replacement ­program and new terminal ­infrastructure.


The bank, a Crown corporation, has just loaned B.C. Ferries $75 million toward the cost of its electrification program for four new Island-class ferries and for on-shore charging infrastructure. The loan amount covers less than 50 per cent of the cost of the overall project.


It’s the first time B.C. Ferries has partnered with the bank, said B.C. Ferries president ­Nicolas Jimenez.


“That’s important to us because it is an institution whose mandate really aligns with ours, which is to find opportunities to invest in public infrastructure that does really important things. In this case, it helps us green our fleet.”


The new electric Island-class vessels will be built in Romania by Damen Shipyard Group. The first vessel is expected in B.C. in 2027.
