Injunction against Saskatchewan windfarm lifted

September 14, 2010

The Moosomin World-Spectator reports that the Saskatchewan Court of Queen's Bench has now lifted its injunction against construction of a windfarm near Moosomin.

The original injunction was issued ex parte on August 25th and was in place for six days.  After a hearing of the matter on September 1 with all parties represented, the injunction was lifted and construction of the windfarm resumed the following day.  

Costs have reportedly been awarded to the windfarm owner.  Counsel has estimated that the cost of construction delays is approximately $74,000 per day.
