Two draft agreements on B.C. Caribou protection ‘historic,’ says minister

Industry News

Public meetings will begin in April on two new draft agreements that focus on protecting B.C.’s southern mountain caribou.

The first agreement, between the B.C. and federal government and the West Moberly and Saulteau First Nations, proposes an interim moratorium area and a caribou recovery review area in northeastern B.C. to help the dwindling Pine, Narraway and Quintette herds. No existing mining operations will be affected, but forestry and others would be.
