Please, take the time to read the text below carefully to have a good understanding of the class action
On March 19, 2012, the Superior Court of Québec designated me to represent the group of persons authorized to bring a class action against Zinc électrolytique du Canada Ltée for the release of a toxic cloud of sulphur trioxide that occured on the evening of August 9, 2004.
Class actions serve efficiency and justice by ensuring that actual and potential wrongdoers do not ignore their obligations to the public. Without class actions, those who cause widespread but individually minimal harm might not take into account the full costs of their conduct, because for any one plaintiff the expense of bringing suit would far exceed the likely recovery.
Supreme Court of Canada
If there is a field of human activity that commands, from now on, the uppermost vigilance, it is the collective protection of citizens against environmental damage.(...) Class actions constitute one of the very few procedural vehicles that enable citizens to act, together, as guardians of their environment.
