The Court dismisses the application on a stay of proceedings in light of the framework in R. v. Jordan (S.C. Can., 2016-07-08, 2016 SCC 27, SOQUIJ AZ-51302609, 2016EXP-2173, J.E. 2016-1212), finding that the case has become particularly complex because of the presence of exceptional circumstances


R. v. Charron in Word format.

The case management judge may set the terms for presenting evidence peripheral to the actual issues at trial if it does not put the accused’s right to make full answer and defence at risk; therefore, in this case, the prosecution is authorized to present evidence of certain secondary facts by way of a sworn written statement, but the accused must be given the opportunity to contest it and, if appropriate, require that testimonial evidence be adduced

Énergie éolienne des Moulins, s.e.c. v. Labranche in Word format.

According to Centrale des syndicats du Québec c. Allen (C.A., 2016-04-12), 2016 QCCA 621, SOQUIJ AZ-51276484, the trial judge will grant leave to appeal from a judgment authorizing a class action where that judgment appears, on its very face, to contain a determinative error in interpreting the conditions for bringing the class action or in assessing the facts related to those conditions, or where the Superior Court clearly lacked jurisdiction (art. 578 C.C.P.)
