Michelle Bay Claim (IR 25)

This specific claim involves the failure by the Crown to protect the interests of the Lake Babine First Nation when it failed to obtain a surrender for lease of lands comprising approximately 10.3 acres for use as a log yard initially for the Quality Spruce Mills Limited then subsequently for the Bulkley Valley Forest Industry.  There was no effort to get LBN to surrender the reserve or establish the proper lease terms for the early use of the land by the mills.  Later, when documents for the surrender were drawn up, there were several irregularities and problems with these documents.
