TERRACE, B.C. — With the official close of the Skeena Cellulose deal less than a week away, another bump in the road has threatened to cast a wrench into the plan.

This time it’s Native concerns over the province’s ability to transfer the company’s forest tenures on Gitanyow First Nations territory.

The Gitanyow First Nations have launched a motion in B.C. Supreme Court, challenging the move. On Friday, they will be back in court to formally ask the minister of forests to scrap the plan to transfer the tenures to Skeena’s new owners.
