The cost of taking BC Ferries is about to go up thanks to a new 1.5% fuel surcharge starting June 1st, 2019.
On routes between Metro Vancouver and Vancouver Island, this is an additional 25 cents for an adult passenger and 85 cents for a vehicle. For the smaller inter-island routes, this is 15 cents for adult passengers and 45 cents for a vehicle.
BC Ferries uses fuel surcharges/rebates to offset the fluctuations in the price of fuel. Rebates are given at time of ticket purchase when the cost of fuel is low, while surcharges are added when the prices are high.

Square Enix dropped a teaser video for the much anticipated Final Fantasy VII Remake, which is a total overhaul of the popular Final Fantasy VII that was released 20 years ago on the original PlayStation.
The brief video uses footage from the beginning of the game in the dismal city of Midgar and opens with Aerith and Cloud before introducing members of AVALANCHE: Barrett, Jessie, Biggs and Wedge. Of course, some familiar enemies make an appearance, including the feared Guard Scorpion with its feared tail laser.
There is no release date for Final Fantasy VII Remake as the title is still under development for the PlayStation 4.
More information is expected in June 2019, potentially during E3.
