Friends of the Richelieu. A river. A passion.

"Tout cedit pays est fort uny, remply de forests, vignes & noyers. Aucuns Chrestiens n'estoient encores parvenus jusques en cedit lieu, que nous, qui eusmes assez de peine à monter le riviere à la rame. " Samuel de Champlain

"All this region is very level and full of forests, vines and butternut trees. No Christian has ever visited this land and we had all the misery of the world trying to paddle the river upstream." Samuel de Champlain

Major court case to watch in 2016

In its December 26 edition, the National Post includes Jessica Ernst's case in its list of "five major court cases to watch in 2016".

"Is the water contaminated" reads the headline.

There is no question that the water is contaminated.

The case is about: Encana did it, and with what? And did Alberta Environment and ERCB do their job to protect its citizens and their drinking water resources while making sure Encana is a responsible corporate body and repair damages done?

Of course Ernst versus Encana is a major court case in 2016! But it should have never gone this far this long...
