"It is good to be here with you, all my friends and relatives.
"We are here today to stand with our coastal communities.
"Today is a day of mourning… and a day of celebration:
"We mourn the eroding fabric of our Province, brought on by the backward BC Ferries policy of the current and previous BC Governments.
"We stand with all our coastal communities… we stand with all British Columbian’s. Your government does not value your contribution… your opinions… your ideas… and your solutions.
