Anti-mask protesters cause disturbance on B.C. ferry, cause unloading delay
A group of anti-mask protesters has been banned from BC Ferries for the rest of the day after causing a disturbance on a morning sailing from Nanaimo to Horseshoe Bay.
The incident happened on the 8:30 a.m. sailing of the Queen of Oak Bay, according to BC Ferries spokesperson Deborah Marshall.
A group of about unmasked protesters who boarded in separate vehicles became belligerent and harassed masked passengers, said Marshall.
Unloading of the vessel was delayed as BC Ferries waited for West Vancouver police to arrive, she added.
West Vancouver police said the incident involved up to 50 protesters, who became “verbally aggressive” with other passengers.
