Ongoing mechanical issue cancels B.C. Ferries sailings between Island and mainland

B.C. Ferries has cancelled some Monday sailings on routes between Swartz Bay and Tsawwassen and Duke Point and Tsawwassen due to an ongoing mechanical issue with a vessel.

The Queen of Alberni was having problems with its controllable pitch propeller on Sunday, resulting in several cancelled sailings, and has been removed from service.
