Central Morning | Dec 7, 2012 | 9:00
Today we find out who has to foot the bill for clean-up at the Grand Falls-Windsor paper plant. The provincial government took Abitibi Bowater to the Supreme Court of Canada last fall. Earlier A Quebec court judge had ruled the Province was responsible for the cleanup of any pollution left behind by the paper maker and its predecessors. That's because government had expropriated water and timber rights from the company and their properties in the province, including the mill in Grand Falls-Windsor. The province estimates environmental cleanup at the former mill and four other sites will cost at least $100 million. Later this morning, the Ottawa Court will hand down its decision in the case.
