Environmental impact of the Alcoa plant in Baie-Comeau
Class action description
The members of the group ask for the environmental rehabilitation of their land and houses in the St-Georges neighbourhood, a financial compensation for the members who developed an illness caused by the emanations from the plant and an injunctive relief for the reduction of the plant’s harmful emissions.
An out-of-court settlement has been reached in the class action suit brought by the Regroupement des citoyens du quartier St-Georges against Alcoa.
