Paul is pleased to be the next speaker in the Toronto Breakfast Series of the Air and Waste Management Association, Ontario Section on January 21, 2014. His subject will be the following hot topic:
The Non-polluter Pays: Recent Trends in Clean-up Liability for Innocent Companies, Directors and Officers
The Ministry of the Environment has successfully imposed liability for cleaning up land contamination on innocent landowners, who did not cause that contamination. More recently, the MOE’s success has extended to the imposition of personal liability for clean-up on corporate directors and officers, even where they were appointed after the contamination occurred.
These decisions have important implications for companies that own or acquire land and for existing and prospective directors and officers.
Paul will review some of the key decisions at the Environmental Review Tribunal and in the courts, and the implications for companies, directors and officers in Ontario.
