RICHMOND, B.C. — Catalyst Paper is continuing its court battles against four British Columbia municipalities over property tax rates. The British Columbia Supreme Court ruled in October that property taxes Catalyst has to pay are valid. The decision used Catalyst’s dispute with North Cowichan as a test case.

In mid-November, the company appealed the decision, according to the Vancouver Sun.

Catalyst refused to pay its municipal taxes in the four communities in which it has mills, and filed suit against the municipalities. Several other companies have taken similar action.
