Things don’t look good for non-commercial users of the Broken Group Islands, at least in the short term. Parks Canada held a meeting with “commercial operators and sstakeholders” on January 15 to discuss plans for the possible re-opening of the islands for the upcoming summer season. Here’s a link to a copy of their notes from the meeting:
The Parks Canada notes give more details of what Mike Gilbert shared in his notes (see previous post). The impression I get is that the focus of the meeting was on how the various commercial entities could safely share the space while there are still public health concerns. There appears to be very little consideration of how private users might be accommodated other than suggestions that any private group meet a number of what look like fairly onerous requirements.
