Canadian Politicians Complain About Kitsap Transit Testing

A story in today’s Times Colonist newspaper in Victoria, British Columbia, says Gulf Islands politicians are demanding that the Canadian government reject plans to hold high-speed wake tests of Kitsap Transit’s new prototype ferry in Canadian Waters. It’s interesting stuff I wanted to point now because I won’t be able to follow up on it until later. Got a couple other stories I have to deal with first, but I’ll get there.
