AbstractEssentially landslides in Leda clay are a geological process caused by the retreat of the sea in which the clays were deposited and by the crustal uplift of Eastern Canada. Because this is a geological process remedial measures to prevent landslides in Leda clay will be extremely expensive. It would be better to avoid possible landslide sites if at all possible. The investigation for any structure founded on Leda clay should include some thought to the matter of landslides.
