B.C. Ferries names new vessels leaving name calling in its wake
Original #NameAFerry campaign turned nasty naming new ship 'Queen of Delays'
After a choppy start to B.C. Ferries name search for their new ferries, three new titles were chosen today, in honour of West Coast Salish history and its legends.
The B.C. Ferries vessels Salish Raven, Salish Orca and Salish Eagle will soon be plying the waves, serving comfort food and diesel-scented travel memories to B.C. ferry-goers.
But it wasn't a simple sail into the sunset. At first the social media campaign backfired when the #NameAFerry hashtag was hijacked by people critical of ferry service and rising fares.
