The event will be held on June 5th, and the seminar topics is the BCSC’s recent decision in Tanex Industries Ltd. v. Greater Vancouver Water District. That decision examined whether contamination related clean-up costs should be factored into the preliminary statutory compensation paid by expropriating authorities to expropriated landowners. The seminar will examine the Tanex Industries case,  the relationship between market value and contamination, the procedural and compensation provisions of the Expropriation Act, and the Environmental Management Act.

Eyford Partners LLP will be the wine sponsor the dinner and Evan Cooke has been the President of the BCEA since 2014.
