February 2009 - Billington Barristers appoints Receiver over abandoned excavation site on behalf of The City of Calgary

Madam Justice A. Kent of the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta has granted the application of Richard N. Billington, Q.C. to appoint a receiver over land where a major excavation was abandoned, creating a public safety hazard. The site in question, Manchester Station, in south Calgary near Chinook Centre, has been subject to an Order made by the City under the Municipal Government Act, but that Order has not been complied with. The City retained Billington Barristers to also seek an injunction against the defaulting owner who was also committing a trespass on neighbouring land.
