It appears the private citizen’s law suit regarding the Lemon Creek fuel spill will proceed even as the Feds ponder whether they’ll prosecute it.
At the moment Slocan Valley resident Marilyn Burgoon is the prosecutor having earlier won the right to sue the Province and Executive Flight Centre over the 2013 spill of 33,000 litres of aviation fuel into the creek.

Lysenko says the judge is tired of waiting for the federal crown to decide if it will prosecute. An arraignment hearing will proceed Monday with Burgoon as prosecutor at this stage.
