One of the original partners in Saint John's Safe Clean Drinking Water project has launched a suit against the others. Wood Canada Ltd., formerly Amec Foster Wheeler, is alleging the other partners breached the project's design agreement, acted in bad faith and were negligent.
The City of Saint John will not provide an update on how much its long-awaited "safe, clean drinking water" system will cost. A CBC news right-to-information request reveals that the figure isn't publicly available. The request resulted in 2,100 pages of documents about the project, with most records of price blacked out.
