Ludwig's peace bond hearing delayed; reports

By staff

There are reports that the Peace Bond matter between Wiebo Ludwig and several Alberta oil and gas companies has been adjourned for a later date.


Grande Prairie’s Free FM News reports that the judge has delayed the hearing until March 24th.

As reported earlier, the summons was served last week on Ludwig as well as his 29-year-old son Benjamin and 54 year-old Richard Boonstra. The bond was served on on behalf of the EnCana Corporation, Canadian Superior Energy and Seaview Energy
Representatives from the energy companies say they fear the trio will cause personal injury to their employees or will damage their Peace Region properties.
They hope the courts will rule that the three men will be subject to arrest for coming near any of their sites, or attempting to communicate with any of their employees.
The 68 year-old Ludwig is quoted as telling CTV News “We will try to appeal to the judge’s humanity, but when it comes to law there isn’t much, to appeal to…they’ve got it all fixed.”
He also added “People on the land have very little room to make a case against industry and the danger it poses.”
However, Ludwig is determined to fight the legal request, and insists he’s not the person responsible for the six bombings at EnCana well sites southeast of Pouce Coupe.
