B.C. Ferries says after test runs Monday morning, the Queen of New Westminster will be back in service for the Swartz Bay-Tsawwassen run.
Deborah Marshall at B.C. Ferries says the vessel will get back to sailing for the 10 a.m. departure from Tsawwassen to Swartz Bay, after its first two runs for the day were cancelled.
A problem with the Queen of New Westminster’s controllable pitch propeller forced the cancellation of six runs Sunday, three in both directions.
