In November 1974, a citizens’ group on the Queen Charlotte Islands (the Islands Protection Committee – I.P.C.) requested the Provincial Government to designate that portion of Moresby Island south of the Tagil Peninsula and Tasu Sound as Wilderness area (Figure 1). In April of 1975, the Environment and Land Use Committee instructed the ELUC Secretariat to examine the proposal. In view of the work load on the Secretariat at that time, the Environment and Land Use Committee concurrently agreed that the Secretariat defer this investigation until the summer of 1976.
