AMHS schedule
By Michael Moyer


August 09, 2008

Isn't that nice the new ferry schedule is out?!! Too bad that's not the issue! No one ever really cared that the schedule was late in the first place. It's where the ferries are scheduled to travel that was, and still is, the issue.

We don't care how many times the ferry goes to Rupert. We do care that it rarely goes to Bellingham. This just shows how out of touch this administration is with the needs of average Alaskans.

The legislature is willing to hand out billions of dollars in subsidies to placate Alaskans into thinking they will save their bacon this winter with fuel costs. However we are told if we want to go to the lower 48 we must all cram onto one boat a week, or drive 1,033 miles from Prince Rupert B.C.. That's telling us where to go by golly!!
