What’s Hot on CanLII This Week

Here are the three most consulted cases on CanLII for the week of November 1 – 7.

  1. Sam’s Auto Wrecking and Lombard General Insurance, 2011 ONSC 6441

    [12] The central issue is whether or not the personal injury experienced by Mr. Ferber, indirectly at the hands of an employee at Sam’s operating within the scope of his employment, was or should have been covered by the commercial general liability which was part of the comprehensive business policy provided by Lombard.

  2. Tuchenhagen v. Mondaux, 2011 ONSC 5398

    [1] During the month of July 2008, the City of Thunder Bay offered for sale, by public tender, the property located within its boundaries at 141 Hardisty Street North. The property was sold to the appellant, Robert Tuchenhagen, who was a member of the City Council. At a meeting of the Council, held on July 29, 2008, after his bid to purchase the land had been made, Robert Tuchenhagen disclosed his pecuniary interest in the sale as required by the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act, 2001, S.O. 2001, c. 25 (“MCIA”). The respondent, Gilles Mondoux, who submitted the only other bid, believes that Robert Tuchenhagen waited too long before declaring his interest.

  3. Canada (Canadian Human Rights Commission) v. Canada (Attorney General), 2011 SCC 53

    The main question before us is whether the [Canadian Human Rights] Tribunal made a reviewable error in deciding that this power to order compensation for “any expenses incurred by the victim as a result of the discriminatory practice” permits it to order payment of all or a portion of the victim’s legal costs.

The most consulted French-language decision was Zodiak International c. Polish People’s Republic, [1983] 1 RCS 529

Ce pourvoi porte sur la clause compromissoire, art. 940 à 951 C.p.c., et procède d’une exception déclinatoire.

Note the date! Perhaps unsurprisingly, the English-language version didn’t crack even the top 1000 most consulted cases last week, according to Colin Lachance at CanLII.
