Wednesday: What’s Hot on CanLII

Each Wednesday we tell you which three English-language cases and which French-language case have been the most viewed on CanLII and we give you a small sense of what the cases are about.

For the week* of February 6 – 10:

  1. Meads v. Meads 2012 ABQB 571

    [1] This Court has developed a new awareness and understanding of a category of vexatious litigant. As we shall see, while there is often a lack of homogeneity, and some individuals or groups have no name or special identity, they (by their own admission or by descriptions given by others) often fall into the following descriptions: Detaxers; Freemen or Freemen-on-the-Land; Sovereign Men . . .

  2. Grand Erie District School Board v. Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation 2013 ONSC 723

    [1] The applicant seeks judicial review of an Arbitration Award interpreting Article 12.06 of the Collective Agreement, which reads:

    No teacher shall be assigned more than 3.0 courses per semester unless there is an agreement by the teacher, the Bargaining Unit and the Board.

  3. Waterloo Catholic District School Board v CUPE, Local 2512 2012 CanLII 51844 (ON LA)

    The Union filed this grievance because of the failure of the Employer to post the position of Receptionist in the Education Centre. It says that the Employer violated Article 15 of the collective agreement along with other provisions. There is no dispute that the collective agreement was not followed but the Employer claims that it was justified in so doing because of the provisions of the Ontario Human rights Act (hereinafter OHRA) which obligate it, and the Union , to accommodate disabled employees.

The most-consulted French-language decision was Langevin 2012 QCCS 613

[1] Sylvio Langevin réclame la propriété de la planète Terre[1]. Dans un autre dossier entrepris le même jour, il réclame celle des planètes Mercure, Vénus, Jupiter, Saturne et Uranus, ainsi que des quatre grosses lunes de Jupiter[2].

*This is a short week because CanLII server stats were not refreshed in time. The missing days will be accounted for next week Wednesday.
