A Superior Court judge will begin hearing arguments Tuesday for a class action lawsuit on behalf of people who sustained property damage from the Richelieu River flood of 2011.
The lawsuit seeks $200 million from the Quebec and federal governments.
More than 3000 homeowners suffered property damage.
Some people lost their homes outright.
The $200 million claimed in the suit represents losses not covered by the Quebec government, moral damages as well as a charge that the federal government failed to properly manage the watershed , including never completing a dam on the river between Chambly and Saint -Jean- sur- Richelieu.
The hearing is expected to last four days.
