Alberta, Canada


The following excerpt is from Bova Steel Inc v Constructions Beauce-Atlas Inc (Les), 2016 ABQB 589 (CanLII):

Here, there is simply a bald assertion in the statement of claim that there has been unjust enrichment with no explanation as to why the facts here might justify the claim, and bare allegations of fact such as these do not establish a reasonable claim: Hovsepian v. Westfair Foods Ltd., 2001 ABQB 700, [2001] A.J. No. 1074, at para.. 28 – 30.
