Does common issue # 6 need to be answered on a common basis?

Ontario, Canada

The following excerpt is from Kafka v. Allstate Insurance Company of Canada, 2011 ONSC 2305 (CanLII):

There is some basis in the evidence for common issue # 6, but there is no basis in the evidence to conclude that it is capable of being answered on a common basis. The issue of mitigation needs to be considered on a “case-by-case basis” (see Evans v. Teamsters, supra, at para 27).
