A claim for contamination of a site formerly occupied by gas stations. At para 46, the court points out "(w)ith respect to the nature of the claim, this case concerns a latent problem which, by its nature, is likely to emerge only years after the initial contamination." The courts goes on to say "the nature of such cases, suggests to me that commercial prudence would dictate the adoption of document retention policies that preserve the means of investigation of claims."
