VANCOUVER – More than 400 commercial fishermen in British Columbia have been given the go-ahead to sue the federal government as part of a class-action lawsuit sparked by a halibut-management strategy.
B.C. Supreme Court Judge Susan Griffin certified what she called a “novel” lawsuit, which was launched against Fisheries and Oceans Canada by fisherman Barry Burnell.
“To my knowledge to date there has been no authority awarding a fisher damages or restitution of fees paid by the fisher under one of these fisheries management schemes,” Griffin said in her written ruling, posted online Wednesday.
