West Moberly First Nation tackles B.C. Supreme Court

By Energeticcity.ca staff

Members of the West Moberly First Nation have taken a caribou debate to the B.C. Supreme Court.

Chief Roland Willson and other concerned residents in the West Moberly First Nation attended court in Victoria on Monday. The group is pushing to protect the remaining caribou habitat from industry development.

In October, Chief Willson explained that the Burnt-Pine caribou population is being threatened by a proposed coal facility by Vancouver-based First Coal. Willson says the endangered species is down to just 11 members in the region.

But, First Coal President and CEO, Doug Smith, argued the company has established a caribou mitigation and monitoring plan.

The debate stems from a decision by the Provincial Government that approved mining permits in the area for First Coal.
