Red Lily Wind Farm could seek $450,000.00 from landowner for bringing unnecessary injunction

On August 25, 2010 the Court of Queen's Bench in Saskatoon granted an interim injunction restricting further construction on the Red Lily Wind Farm near Moosomin, Saskatchewan. David McKinnon, a landowner within proximity of the Red Lily Wind Farm, applied for the ex parte injunction and one week later, on September 1, 2010 the Court of Queen's Bench overturned the injunction after hearing from all parties.

In order to obtain the injunction, Mr. McKinnon had to undertake to pay damages if the injunction was found to be unnecessary and damages were caused. Red Lily Wind Farm ascertains that the cost of the construction delay was $74,000.00 per day for 6 days, totalling nearly $450,000.00.
