The decision of the Ontario Court of Appeal in Union Gas Limited v. Township of Norwich, in which Phil Tunley acted on behalf of the Ontario Energy Board as an intervenor, gives effect to a cost-sharing mechanism developed by the Board in its 1986 Report and Model Franchise Agreement, to allocate costs of gas pipeline relocations that result from municipal drainages and other works. Tunley, on behalf of the Board, provided submissions on the policy behind the cost-sharing provisions of the Model Franchise Agreement and how certain provisions of statutory language should be interpreted.
The decision is featured in this week’s edition of the Ontario Reports.
