Vancouver - Two Indian Bands in British Columbia that were at the centre of the Delgamuukw court case, which set new ground rules for negotiating treaties have agreed to resume talks with the province. The Gitxsan First Nation and the province signed a "reconciliation agreement" yesterday that sets out a framework for resolving a lengthy list of issues. The use of forests on Gitxsan land is at the top of the list, Gitxsan spokesman Don Ryan said. Meanwhile, the Wet'suwet'en First Nation signed an agreement with the province yesterday that is expected to move its treaty talks forward.
