Lilgert wants to appeal to Supreme Court of Canada

The man convicted for his role in the sinking of a passenger ferry off the BC North Coast wants to appeal.

Karl Lilgert has filed leave to appeal the case at the Supreme Court of Canada.

Lilgert was convicted on two counts of criminal negligence causing death in the 2006 sinking of the Queen of the North.

The ferry struck Gil Island during its overnight voyage resulting in deaths of Gerald Foisy and Shirley Rosette.

Lilgert, who was navigating at the time the ferry failed to make a course change, was sentenced to four years in prison.

His appeal of the conviction was rejected by the BC Court of Appeal.
