Ontario, Canada


The following excerpt is from Tigay v. Bucataru, 2017 ONCJ 885 (CanLII):

One of the intents of subrule 24(11)(b) is to discourage unreasonable behaviour by the parties. And to the extent that one of the parties is not so discouraged, this will tend to push the amount of costs higher. See Serra v. Serra, supra Conclusion
