Concerned Citizens of Brant

Representation before the Environmental Review Tribunal on a proposed gravel pit near Paris, ON.

CELA counsel represented the Concerned Citizens of Brant (CCOB on Facebook) in a hearing before the Environmental Review Tribunal (ERT) in relation to a proposed operation of a gravel pit in Paris, Ontario. CCOB was concerned that atrazine, a herbicide that had been previously used at the site, would result in groundwater contamination as a result of the proposed operation. CCOB called a toxicologist, a hydrogeologist and an engineer to provide expert testimony at the hearing. In addition, nine members of the community also made presentations to the ERT.
