The federal Transportation Safety Board says it looked into whether sex was taking place on the bridge of the B.C. ferry Queen of the North when it sank last year. A board spokesman tells reporters that scenario was part of its investigation. A B.C. Ferries spokesperson acknowledges there has been speculation about sex playing a role in the sinking, but wouldn't comment further.A draft report on the sinking -- in which two of the 101 passengers are missing and presumed dead -- is to be delivered to the board within days. The draft report goes next to interested parties for comment and a final report is expected in three to six months.
