Saskatchewan, Canada


The following excerpt is from McCredie v. Kilbach Estate; Kilbach v. McCredie Estate, 1987 CanLII 4821 (SK QB):

The following assessment by Esson, J.A., in the particular circumstances that prevailed in Adam v. Insurance Corporation of British Columbia is equally applicable to the situation as disclosed in the material before me: “... there was no misapprehension and no mistake as to the step that was to be taken and the significance of that step. There was no inadvertence rather, there was a considered decision by the plaintiffs to terminate the action.”
