You know it is cold when… 

BC Ferries announced the cancellation of two sailings on major routes Tuesday, citing freezing weather conditions as the source.

Two sailings between Tsawwassen and Duke Point have been cancelled, the 3:15 p.m. from Tsawwassen and the 5:45 p.m. leaving Duke Point. 

In a tweet, BC Ferries said freezing temperatures caused water pipes to freeze and other unsafe conditions on the vessel’s vehicle decks.

At the time of publication, no other cancellations had been announced and no other routes have been affected.

Last week, special weather statements with warnings of rain, snow, and arctic air were issued for most of Vancouver Island, including the Greater Victoria area.
