Burns Bog Damage Prompts Lawsuit


A B.C. Supreme Court trial is set for next year in a lawsuit launched by Delta against a company the municipality alleges caused significant ecological damage to Burns Bog.

In March 2013, Delta, joined by Metro Vancouver, filed a claim against Princess Farms alleging that damage has occurred within the Burns Bog Ecological Conservancy Area as a result of soil deposit activities that were carried out on an adjacent property on 104th Street in East Delta.

The case, which will be heard in January, alleges the activities occurred with the consent of the company and by or under the supervision of Matcom Landfill Management Inc. and/or Matcom Civil Constructors Inc. All three parties have been named as defendants in the lawsuit, which is currently going through examinations for discovery.
