Negotiations between the province and Blueberry First Nations appear to be going well as the two have agreed to put off litigation until October.
Though the litigation has been adjourned until October 15th, the two are still partaking in discussions outside of court in the meantime.
Discussions are focusing on the effects of resource development on Blueberry lands as well as their Treaty 8 rights.
The two have already committed to work together on: a land-use permit for the Fort St John Timber supply area, wildlife restoration initiatives, moose monitoring and protection, and the development of a consultation process.
Both parties agree that negotiations have been productive thus far.
