In a statement, a BC Ferries spokesperson told Daily Hive that they have seen the posts on social media and that “some people have quite an imagination.”
However, as the old saying goes, any publicity is good publicity, and the spokesperson noted that however the signs are being interpreted, “the conversation has raised the awareness about our mandatory face mask policy… which we see as a positive.”
