Yukon, Canada


The following excerpt is from Golden Hill Ventures Limited Partnership v. Ross Mining Limited, 2012 YKSC 102 (CanLII):

In Chaloux v. Kingston Fairgrounds Golf Course (2004), 2004 CanLII 25162 (ON SC), 48 C.B.R. (4th) 237 (Ont. S.C.), the bankrupt sued for personal injury and filed a voluntary assignment into bankruptcy before the issue of court costs was resolved. The court costs issue was addressed after the discharge of the bankrupt and Belch J. ruled that: 1. Compensation for personal injury did not vest in the trustee in bankruptcy; and 2. Court costs incurred after the discharge of the bankrupt were not extinguished by the assignment.
