I dislike waiting. Someone doing a word association test would never blurt my name as a response if the word “patience” was provided. Lucky for me, tomorrow ends the wait for the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in Tercon Contractors Ltd. v. Her Majesty the Queen in Right of the Province of British Columbia by her Ministry of Transportation and Highways.
There is a considerable amount of commentary about Tercon available from a wide variety of sources on the web:
- Tercon Heads For Supreme Court Showdown
- Supreme Court weighs the rules around bidding
- Supreme Court of Canada to Hear Tercon Appeal
- Tercon Contractors Ltd vs. British Columbia (Ministry of Transportation and Highways) on the BCSC decision [pdf]
- Time to take a stand against onerous contract clauses on the BCCA decision
- Tercon Contractors Ltd vs. British Columbia (Ministry of Transportation and Highways) about the upcoming SCC decision
Note especially the last three links above. The ease of publishing on the web means that comments about trial level decisions can show up in the first 10 google hits as easily as comments about tomorrow’s court of last resort decision. Simon recently asked How Do Lawyers Get Their Information?. My hope is that it is from a variety of sources, including the most current if necessary.
I will be taking a couple of weeks off from posting to read Tercon, among other things. Hope you don’t mind the wait.
