A storm packing heavy rain and high winds slammed into Canada's already soggy Pacific coast on Wednesday, uprooting trees, disrupting travel and possibly causing a building to collapse.
The storm forced BC Ferries to cancel most of its sailings. The ships serve as an extension of the provincial highway system, connecting the mainland with Vancouver Island and other smaller islands off the coast.
