Municipal Law

We have a wealth of experience in assisting municipal authorities and clients who have disputes with or involving city hall.

Municipal law cases that we have been counsel in include:

Coton v. Cultus Lake Park Board, 2008 BCSC 834
  • In 2007 the Cultus Lake Waterpark commenced a $6 million dollar expansion with the approval of the Cultus Lake Park Board. Some local members of the Cultus Lake community challenged the actions of the Park Board and brought a court action to stop the construction of the expansion, which was already well underway. We successfully represented the Waterpark at the British Columbia Supreme Court who ultimately found that while the Park Board initially breached its duty of procedural fairness, this was largely compensated for by their subsequent actions. The court did not order the construction to stop and the new expansion is being enjoyed by thousands of children.
