    This is a blessing for our community. Would you please consider the fact that young teenagers are not adults, don’t have full time jobs if any. This has always been a huge thorn in my side with B.C. Ferries. Why Do they have to pay adult prices??? Who does this cost fall on??? Families already struggling to make ends meet. Many who already can’t .I ask the people of this wonderful community project…could we please be the change (or part of it) we wish to see. What a fantastic example to show other communities and B.C. ferries. I’m not talking charity here. Just what is fair and should already be in place (at least in my, working my butt off for the past 14 yrs here on Gabriola, world) Thankyou all for your hard work…and your consideration in this matter!
    Sincerly, Laura hardy, and kids

    Hi Laura,
    Thanks for your comment – I realize the K – 12 isn’t clear – it means Kindergarten to Grade 12 so does include teenagers. Hope this helps.
