The article reports that the Grand Council of the Cree is questioning Resolute Forest Products' Forest Stewardship Council certification for the second time. The GCC has accused the company of contravening the 2002 Baril-Moses Agreement which is a section of the Paix des Braves that covers forestry practices. Concerns have been raised among the Cree due to Resolute's reluctance to give company data about the site.
