We handle a substantial portion of the solicitors’ and litigation work for the Greater Vancouver Regional District (GVRD), Greater Vancouver Water District, Greater Vancouver Sewerage and Drainage District, Greater Vancouver Hospital District, and Greater Vancouver Housing Corporation.
We have been involved extensively in local government, environmental, regulatory, and other issues, advising on the development of air quality, liquid and solid waste plans, watershed management and the new water quality options and enhancement program. We have also represented the GVRD in connection with the development and construction of several regional waste facilities, including the Cache Creek and Coquitlam landfills, the Burnaby incinerator, and the Lulu Island and Annacis Island secondary treatment plants.
We also acted for British Columbia Transmission Corporation (BCTC) in connection with its assumption of the operation and management of the electricity transmission system from BC Hydro.
Additionally, we have considerable expertise in the area of expropriation law. We act primarily on behalf of expropriating authorities, advising generally with respect to issues concerning the nature and scope of statutory powers of expropriation, requirements for lawful expropriation and compensation. We have conducted numerous expropriations, from initial acquisition procedures through to the final determination of compensation at hearings. We have also represented numerous landowners whose interests have been expropriated. In that capacity we have appeared in the British Columbia Supreme Court and before the Expropriation Compensation Board.
