“Factum” means the written synopsis of the oral argument that the Judge reads before hearing from the lawyers. Reading the documents may make listening to the oral submissions of the lawyers more interesting.

It has been a long journey, but as our lawyer said in Court last August 23rd, “WE MUST NEVER LET THIS HAPPEN AGAIN”. (He said it in Algonquin.)

We hope to see you there, and thank you for your support from day one.

Summary judgement resumes December 1, 2016

Summary judgment hearing resumes on December 1st at 10:00 a.m. at Osgoode Hall, before the Honourable Justice Belobaba of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice.

Whatever Minister Carolyn Bennett said to the press and public about wanting to settle, the Defendant Canada’s legal team will be arguing against the recognition of any legal responsibility for the harm caused to the alleged 16,000 children of the Ontario Sixties Scoop. The Plaintiff’s lawyers will be able to provide reply, if necessary, on December 2nd.

Canada will not be filing its Factum (written legal argument) until November 24th. Please email us if you would like to receive a copy of Canada’s Factum, and let us know if you would also like a copy of the Plaintiff Marcia Reply Factum, once and if, filed.

The hearing is open to the public. We will post the courtroom information when we have it.
