It was a Human Error to blame;
Human error sent the 8,800-tonne Queen of the North onto an island on March 22, 2006. The bridge crew did not change course and mechanical failure was not a factor, says a BC Ferries internal report released Monday. Lilgert and second officer Keven Hilton, who was lunching in the mess at the time of the crash, refused to testify about the final 14 minutes of the voyage, from when the ferry emerged from Grenville Channel until it impacted on Gil Island, on the advice of their lawyer.
Is Canadian Justice System seriously soft or far-advanced by letting these two key crew members not co-operating with BC Ferries’ internal investigation? Shouldn’t they come forward and tell the truth? I’m even surprised that the media has not highlighted the story about them.
