RICHMOND, B.C. — One year after several B.C. forest products companies rebelled against their municipal taxes, Catalyst Paper announced it will pay its full municipal property tax bill in three of the four municipalities that host its B.C. paper mills. It is seeking leave from the Supreme Court of Canada to appeal a recent court decision involving the fourth municipality.

The company will pay more than $15 million in municipal taxes to Powell River, Campbell River, Port Alberni and the District of North Cowichan. The company continues legal actions against North Cowichan and Campbell River.
