The decision not to move it was a political decision supporting a few West Shore residents without consideration for the greater good of the whole area. Dredging the ferry channel will likely prove to be only temporary as the swift current will soon fill the deepened channel back in. Silting from the dredging could also prove to be very detrimental to the Pennask rainbows spawning just downstream.
The new smaller ferry that is being built would be able to handle the traffic for most of the year with the shortened run resulting in a much reduced " carbon footprint ".
This poor decision must be reversed.

My family lives in the area. This change seems the best solution to the identified risks.

the ferry situation has become out of hand for east shore residents. if the powers that be won't practice greater control of lake levels, which i personally think is the real issue, then moving the terminal to queens bay is the second best option.

The ferry is a must to be moved to Queens bay. Our home was there and constant travels to Trail for chemo, radiation etc made our travels were very difficult when the ferry was down we had to move back to Calgary.

Queen's Bay allows for the Osprey to operate year round without low water weight restrictions and provide faster crossings resulting is long and short term savings, fewer environmental impacts and safer operation.

Better for the environment long term, shorter trip better especially during the many hour waits.
