What is the applicable period of delay where presumed prejudice should be applied?

Nova Scotia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Brogan v. RBC Dominion Securities Inc., 2009 NSSC 351 (CanLII):

Moir v. Landry, supra, indicates that the period of delay where presumed prejudice should be applied would be limited to cases where the delay was extremely lengthy, as in Martell, Savoie and A.J.M. On the basis of these cases, I am unwilling to make a presumption of prejudice in this case.
