Canada (Federal), Canada

The following excerpt is from Boubarak v. Canada (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration), 2003 FC 1239 (CanLII):

In Chin v. Canada (Minister of Employment and Immigration), [1993] F.C.J. No. 1033, Madam Justice Reed writes at paragraph 10: Counsel and client for such purposes are one. It is too easy a justification for non-compliance with the rules for counsel to say the delay was not in any way caused by my client and if an extension is not granted my client will be prejudiced.
