Supreme Court Hearing Clear-Cut Logging Case

The submissions have been made to the Supreme Court over the legality of clear-cut logging on First Nations territory.

It involves a case involving two trappers from the Grassy Narrows First Nation.

Lawyers for the band say the province overstepped its bounds by issuing a forestry license for the area.

The province insists it has legal authority to issue sustainable forest licenses.
