Twenty fish farms will remain in the troubled waters off north Vancouver Island for at least another two months. While some may be expecting the provincial government to either expel the farms from the Broughton Archipelago or grant them permission to stay when their tenures expire on Wednesday, the company that owns them says it’s likely they’ll continue operating on a month-to-month basis. Jeremy Dunn of Marine Harvest Canada says the Land Act requires the government to give the company 60 days notice if it plans to evict the farms, which it has not yet done. Dunn says it’s quite common for tenures that require extensive consultation to go into the month-to-month provision and he says the same thing happened the last time the tenures expired. Last week, Premier John Horgan said his government is continuing nation-to-nation talks with the First Nations who say the farms are operating in their traditional territories without their permission and pose too great a risk to wild salmon. He said there would be an announcement about the expiring tenures in the coming days.
