Small towns wins against oil and gas company

Postby Bigjohn69 » Mar 1st, 2018, 12:56 pm

A small Quebec town that was facing a $1-million lawsuit from an oil-and-gas exploration company for trying to protect its own water has won its court battle and could see half of its legal fees reimbursed by the Montreal-based company.


The municipality of Ristigouche-Sud-Est has been waiting on this decision from Quebec's Superior Court since August 2013, when Gastem sued the municipality of 157 people.

Mayor Fran├žois Boulay said citizens have been worried and anxious for the past four years. He was relieved to see the judge ruled in their favour.

I wonder how this will influence the BC govts fight against the oil carriers fight on coastal waters ?
