The Court has ruled that the landfill is under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Mines.

Exact implications of the ruling are being examined.

In Shawnigan, we are deeply disappointed and saddened by the Court of Appeal ruling. For four and a half years, our community has been abundantly clear that we do not accept the risk of a contaminated landfill in our watershed.
