British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Johnson v. Workers' Compensation Board et al., 2007 BCSC 24 (CanLII):

Usually a single person or company is affected by the decision of a tribunal on whom a statutory power of decision is conferred, and that party is the only party which can and does pursue judicial review. See, for example, O’Sullivan v. Canada, 1991 CanLII 8224 (FC), [1992], 1 F. C. 522, 45 F.T.R. 284.
