The list of litigants grows for the City of Prince Rupert

We can add the Kitkatla First Nation to the court register, the latest group to file a claim against the City of Prince Rupert over the proposed sale of the Watson Island industrial site.

Kitkatla officials are filing their claim, expressing their concerns that the City of Prince Rupert failed to properly consult them or sufficiently accommodated them, the Statement of Claim seeks to ask the courts to stop the City from selling or redeveloping any portion of the lands in question, asserting Aboriginal title and rights to the site.

The move to the courts is just the latest in legal troubles for the city over the site, with the City still working through the legal process with Sun Wave, the former owners of the industrial site.
