The following excerpt is from Agfa Inc. v. Partners Prepress, 2006 CanLII 28730 (ON SC):

The pleading of intentional interference with economic relations is an intentional tort that requires full particulars. As noted in Lysko v. Brailey (supra), the strict pleading requirements relating to a plea of conspiracy apply equally to a plea of intentional interference with economic relations. The particulars must set out with clarity and precision each of the overt acts which are alleged to have been done in furtherance of the intentional interference with economic relations.
