Judge reserves decision on forestry plan
August 20, 2014, Fredericton, N.B. – A judge in New Brunswick is reserving her decision on whether or not a temporary injunction will be placed on the province’s forestry plan.
According to a report from CBC New Brunswick, Justice Judy Clendening will deliver a decision on Friday at 1:30pm regarding the requested injunction filed by a group of First Nations Chiefs.
The challenge is a result of the recently released New Brunswick forestry plan, which would provide increased access to the province’s Crown wood. First Nations Chiefs are claiming that the province did not meet its obligations to consult with them over a new plan, which they believe will cause significant damage to the province’s forests.
