Scrap metal dealer and processor Herbert "Herbie" Black has launched a Canadian $5-million ($4.2-million) lawsuit against a rival, two environmental groups and several of their directors for allegedly conspiring to prevent him from building a car-shredding plant near Quebec City.

Although he was slapped with an injunction, Black is proceeding with the plant's construction, which he said should be completed by May or June.

Black's company, American Iron & Metal Co. Inc. (AIM), began clearing land in May for the construction of a C$25-million ($21-million) facility in an industrial park in Levis, across the St. Lawrence River from Quebec City.

The new plant, with a planned throughput of 300,000 tons a year, will feature a cutting-edge metal shredder for the recycling of metals and autos from the Maritime provinces and Quebec City area. It will complement AIM's existing shredder in Montreal, which has an annual capacity of 365,000 tons.....
