Private Investigators hired to collect information on Alberta Landowners in an EUB hearing process

Private Investigators hired to collect information on Alberta Landowners in an EUB hearing process Press Release by Lavesta Area Group, June 13, 2007
One individual was confronted and admitted he was indeed a private investigator but refused to identify who hired him and for what purpose he was collecting information. Under cross-examination AltaLink Management denied culpability or any association with the private investigators, however when asked, the EUB panel and staff maintained that they needed more information before they could reply or comment. Lawyers representing landowners are concerned that the investigators collected information subject to client solicitor privileges and as such are extremely troubled of the possibility the EUB hired the investigators and compromised the entire hearing process by engaging in its own secretive investigation. When the issue was raised in the Rimbey court house on Monday, the EUB Board panel directed counsel concerned about the private investigators to file a motion rather than summarily address the issue before proceeding.
