Court of Appeal Reasons

On August 19, 2015 the BC Court of Appeal issued reasons for judgment in relation to the appeals of the certification against all parties. A copy can be found by clicking <here>. The Court of Appeal upheld most of the BC Supreme Court’s decision to certify the BC Action as a class proceeding against all defendants, except Desjardins.
