Malcolm Island
Malcolm Island is separated from the northeastern shores of Vancouver Island by the Broughton Strait, opposite Port McNeill.
The island was named after Admiral Sir Pulteney Malcolm (1758-1838), and at the turn of the 19th century it became the site of an attempted colonization by Finnish socialists, who formed the village of Sointula.1
