Absent Friends

My shoe phone rang early this morning, a friend and co-worker on the other end calling from his ship
"Have you heard about the Queen of the North?" he said, "It sunk! Isn't that Dave's ship? "

I struggled with all the info at once- early in the morning and still half asleep, a BC Ferry has sunk and the fact that another friend and old-schoolmate was possibly onboard.

An incident like this shows what a small marine community there is in Canada, in that several individuals on the East Coast are making calls to friends on the West Coast trying to find out that they are fine.

Thankfully everyone made it off the ship with minimal injuries. That is the important part and shows the crew's training was well looked after by BCFerries.

I look forward to the results of TSB and Transport Canada investigation into the cause of the accident.
