The Top 5 November civil appeals were selected by Peter Kryworuk and Jacob Damstra. They include the tragic fallout of hijinks on a school bus; the reversal of a Rule 21 dismissal of an application that, if ultimately successful, will significantly reduce the monthly electricity bill of every Ontario household, business and industry; a case of public interest standing to question the constitutionality of inspectors powers under the Society for Prevention to Cruelty of Animals Act; Ontario’s jurisdiction over certain important areas of labour relations; and limitations and discoverability issues in SABS claims. Quite a mixture of important cases, typical of what is coming out of the ONCA these days
Peter and Jacob’s Top 5 Holiday libations, with recipes, is timely, and a classic reference guide that every reader will want to download and print, to break out for every festive celebration. I certainly will.
