Victory For BC First Nation Logging Blockade

http://www.popularresistance.org/victory-for-bc-first-nation-logging-blockade/

The British Columbia government didn’t properly consult with a northern First Nation community about forestry activity and then failed to warn a logging contractor about an imminent blockade, according to a court judgement that orders the province pay the company $1.75 million. One lawyer involved in the case says the judgment, which follows several years of legal proceedings that included a trip to the Supreme Court of Canada, should serve as a yet another warning to the provincial government about the need to meaningfully consult with First Nations over resource development.
