"In essence, the provincial department has unlawfully granted Kelly Cove Salmon expansions at these sites without going through the legally mandated approval process, the letter says."
“We’re urging Minister Colwell and Minister Wilson to uphold the law and require Kelly Cove Salmon to come into compliance with its lease boundaries until its lease expansion applications are lawfully approved by the Aquaculture Review Board,” Ecojustice lawyer Sarah McDonald said in a statement.
“By continuing to sit on noncompliant applications while simultaneously allowing Kelly Cove to continue operating outside its lease boundaries, the government is essentially granting Kelly
Cove Salmon unlawful lease expansions. Nova Scotians are counting on Minister Wilson and Minister Colwell to stand up for Nova Scotia’s wild fish stocks, the environment and local communities’ legal right to be consulted.”
