As I did. Except I used the interwebs - cost me $12.00 I'll never get back. (Thanks Uncle)
HC got a couple preliminary orders. Nothing more, nothing less. He very much lost on the petition. I doubt that there are many reported decisions on setting a date certain. There is no reason to get the transcripts as these types of decisions are mundane and of no concern in the overall picture. The actual official outcome was the petition was struck. He can claim he won the battles along the way - but we know to whom the war went.
Thank for confirming what I stated.
Hazen Colbert got a couple of preliminary orders.
As for the war, again you were not in court. If you had been in court, what you have seen at the conclusion of Justice Greyall's decision was Bond's lawyer, slamming her paraphernalia into a briefcase, and storming out of the courtroom with such a display of venom that one would have thought she was one of the false accusers of Jam Ghomeshi. She left only two other two people in the room, the Clerk and I, aghast. I had never seen such a display of wrath and anger. The Clerk and I were left to ponder between us, "how do we decide who is to write the order, get it vetted and then get the judge to sign." That process began a litany of screw ups by opposing counsel that would have filled a law text. Had I not informed counsel that the matter does not close, until I had also signed the order, there likely would have been no order complete. A soul would perish with the knowledge of how much money the DNV paid for counsel's foul up.
I like to think the war is over. Counsel for Bond definitely does not think it is over. According to a third part neither does Bond. I do not know what vexes him, and frankly I don't care.
There is a need for substantive changes at municipal hall, a broom taken to all of a very long-in-the-tooth and ineffective council and a handshake to several senior staff. That is why I ran in the last municipal election.
Yogi Berra said, "You do not win every game."
I agree. Will I run for office at the NSMBA AGM or in the next municipal election. If I believe I can represent the electorate in either case, I might give it a shot. In the meantime I am doing what I think is best for the North Shore.
