There's nowhere to put this so thought I'd start a Provincial Parks thread
The BC government has published the complete list of park land acquisitions over the 2019-2020 fiscal year. A handful of Vancouver Island parks saw expansion, including Octopus Island Marine Park (Quadra Island), Cowichan River Park (Duncan), and Cape Scott (North Island). In total, 16 parks were expanded.
Great news: any policy or legislation that further protects the Cowichan ecosystem is by definition a progressive move. The Cowichan is one of only 40 heritage rivers in Canada, proposed initially in 1997 and formally so designated in 2003. Its diverse topography and geography is truly a gem therefore anything and everything governments can do to enhance and fortify it is something that benefits all of us IMO.
Fun fact: the region was so renowned for its salmon/trout runs its season by season fishing conditions and results were posted in fishing clubs in London as far back as the 1900's.
