Tomorrow the Supreme Court will rule on Grand Falls-Windsor clean-up responsbility
Tomorrow the Supreme Court of Canada will rule on who is responsible for the environmental clean-up of the former paper mill in Grand Falls-Windsor, Newfoundland and Labrador.
Will the “polluter pays” laws result in Resolute Forest Products (formerly AbitibiBowater) being assigned responsibility?
Or will the province of Newfoundland and Labrador be on the hook because they expropriated the assets of the mill after the company announced the closure in March 2009.
