RE: Quebec, Canada: Landslide dgillette (Geotechnical) 13 May 10 19:54 I think that you are correct ecanuck.The appearance of the ground is very much like earthquake-induced spreading from liquefaction. Expect similar behavior.Aside from the slide, everything else looks so normal in the photos. It's almost bizarre - no earthquake damage, no floods, just this slide.

Something like: building is not allowed above a treshold slope angle, or similar?Or do you just trust in your good luck?
