Re: Cutting Blue Boat ferry makes no sense, Letters, March 16, 2012.
This thinly veiled rant against the base commander of CFB Esquimalt in which the writer questions the base commander’s competency and then calls for his dismissal is beyond idiotic.
I can imagine that the decision to halt the Blue Boat did not come easily to the base commander knowing of their past service. But as any fiscally aware commander of a large base or CEO of a large company knows, however painful in the short term, you curtail some of the least cost-effective items first.
How many large companies downtown offer their employees free transportation to and from the work place every day?
Having been a frequent user of the boats I, like many others, will miss their service.
It seems though that someone else, more than all the others, is going to miss his boat rides and is feeling somewhat inconvenienced.
