Alberta, Canada


The following excerpt is from Sorrel 1985 Ltd. Partnership v. Sorrel Resources Ltd., 1997 CanLII 14785 (AB QB):

It should also be noted that in Fink v. Bourassa, two of the authorities relied upon by the plaintiff spoke of the third party admitting that if the defendant were liable, it was also liable - which was not the case here. The other case spoke of the defendant not having a need to join the third party.
