Creditor protection has been extended for Northern Pulp in Nova Scotia until the end of October, a B.C. Supreme Court judge has ruled.

Justice Shelley Fitzpatrick is also allowing the company to use $8 million to pursue reopening efforts and advance legal action against the Nova Scotia government for the mill’s closure in 2020, CBC News reports.
