Prince George, B.C.- John A. Brink Investments has filed a civil suit against BCR Properties over a property in the BCR site in Prince George.

The petition says Brink Investments entered into a lease agreement with the defendant on property in the BCR industrial site in mid 2005. The plan was to develop a mill that could handle beetle killed wood for the production of finger joint products or pellets. Brink’s petition says it was estimated the mill operation would require about 100 acres.

The suit alleges BCR Properties did not disclose to Brink Investments that there had been a landfill on the site , the contamination that existed on the site, and that false site profiles has been provided.

According to the petition filed in B.C. Supreme Court, of the 100 acres covered by the lease agreement, only 60 can be used because the remaining 40 are part of the contaminated landfill. According to Brink’s petition, it would cost more than $14 million dollars to clean and remediate the site.

Brink Investments is seeking general, special and punitive damages, costs, and any other relief the Court may deem just.
