Re: Ferries: Gulf Islanders pay price, by Daniel Palmer, Wednesday, Nov. 7. I was dismayed to read the comments from Harold Swierenga. Does the ferry system need an overhaul? You betcha. But it will take some creative and forward-looking proposals, not falling back into entrenched positions.

It doesn’t help to pit one area of the province against another.

It is no longer the 1960s when the ferry corporation was set up. Our economy has changed drastically.

Try to contribute something thoughtful and meaningful to the current ferry discussions — compromise will be required on both sides.
