First Salish-Class Ferry Named

"Salish Orca"

VICTORIA – BC Ferries held the official naming ceremony for the first Salish-Class vessel at Remontowa Shipbuilding S.A. in Gdansk, Poland earlier this week. The ship was christened according to maritime tradition by the vessel sponsor, Margaret McDonagh, BC Ferries’ Senior Chief Steward on the Queen of Burnaby. The new ferry is scheduled to join the BC Ferries’ fleet in late 2016, replacing the 50-year-old Queen of Burnaby on the Comox – Powell River route.
