BIL on Vanvouver Island emailed me this article.

Looks like they will very soon not be allowing bookings for RVs on BC Ferries.

So they wont be booking RVs, so does that mean you can travel without a reservation?


Sometimes I sit and think deep thoughts. other times, I just sit!

Let's hope that Canada can very soon ramp up it's vaccination program and we can all travel w/o restrictions. BC and it's people are absolutely a wonderful place to travel and visit!

Not that the US has the virus under control but we're making progress.

I believe that they will ask you if your reason for travel is essential. If not, no go.....

Essential travel only. Going to visit someone, going to a RV park reservation you have made a long time ago etc, will not be considered essential, even if you are losing a deposit.
We live on the island and are resigned to only camping here for now, which isn't too bad really.
