Local Government Duty to Consult - Case Reserved

On August 15, 2012, our British Columbia Court of Appeal reserved its decision in Neskonlith Indian Band v. City of Salmon Arm. This appeal addresses whether a local government can owe a duty to consult and accommodate a First Nation in the same manner as the Crown in issuing a development permit. Young, Anderson will provide a Client Bulletin when the Court releases its Reasons for Judgment. In the interim, if there are any questions about the case, feel free to contact Reece Harding or Gregg Cockrill at Young, Anderson.
