Lemon Creek Fuel Spill Class Action

This environmental class action concerns the July, 2013 spill of 35,000 litres of toxic jet fuel into the Slocan River water system in southeastern British Columbia. This environmental disaster, which occurred when a tanker truck overturned during an aircraft refuelling operation, led to the emergency evacuation of thousands of residents in the Slocan Valley and caused hundreds of millions of dollars of damage to both private property and the ecosystem.

The action is brought on behalf of the more than 2,500 residents who were forced to evacuate their homes after the spill. The defendants are the Province of British Columbia, Executive Flight Centre Fuel Services, and Transwest Helicopters.
