KAMLOOPS, BC, Dec. 29, 2011 (Local News) -A B.C. Supreme Court judge has awarded Domtar nearly $2 million to make up for illegal charges by a company which supplies raw materials to the Kamloops pulp mill.

In a 23-page written decision released today (Dec. 28), B.C. Supreme Court Justice Barbara Fisher ruled Univar Canada Ltd. is on the hook for $1,871,408.94 plus interest - the amount the company overcharged Domtar over a six-month period in 2008.

In 2006, the two companies entered into a contract for Univar to supply caustic soda to Domtar's Kamloops mill at a rate of $545 per tonne.
