A second New Brunswick native reserve has accepted a logging agreement with the New Brunswick government giving them limited access to Crown land. The Burnt Church First Nation, near Miramichi, reached an agreement with the province late yesterday . Aboriginal loggers will be able to log on 5 per cent of Crown land every year - about 28,000 cubic metres of wood. New Brunswick Natural Resources Minister Doug Tyler said the value of the timber and royalties to the reserve is worth $1.6 million.
