The 12th Annual BLG Environmental Law Update A number of interesting environmental law decisions were released in 2015. Among the highlights were: a British Columbia Court of Appeal decision holding that comfort letters issued by the Ministry of Environment prior to the current contaminated sites regime coming into force cannot be relied on to limit or avoid liability for remediation costs; a British Columbia Supreme Court decision calling into question long-held assumptions about the recoverability of future remediation costs; several judicial reviews involving major infrastructure projects; and a Supreme Court of Canada decision affirming that Canadian courts have jurisdiction to adjudicate recognition and enforcement actions relating to foreign environmental claims.
