A class-action lawsuit launched by victims of moose-vehicle accidents against the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador has been cleared to proceed. St. John’s-based lawyer Ches Crosbie filed the suit in January. It claims the provincial government’s failure to control the moose population is to blame for the more than 700 moose-vehicle collisions reported annually.
