CVRD files application to BC Court of Appeal

On March 21st, 2016, BC Supreme Court Justice MacKenzie ruled that the contaminated landfill located at 460 Stebbings Road in Shawnigan Lake is not a permitted land use, and he imposed a number of injunctions that prevent the importing of contaminated soil to the site.

The landfill site, which is also an active quarry, is owned by Cobble Hill Holdings (CHH) and operated by South Island Resource Management (SIRM), a subsidiary of Allterra Construction.

Justice Kirkpatrick of the BC Court of Appeal heard the stay application on April 6th, and issued a ruling on April 15th that granted a partial stay that would allow SIRM to complete six contracts – a total of 106,000 tonnes.

On April 27th the CVRD filed a court application to discharge or vary Justice Kirkpatrick’s April 15th order – it will be heard at the BC Court of Appeal in Vancouver on May 9th.
