Is there an undueordinate delay of 2 and a half years to 3 years for a summary trial application?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Schoolhouse Industrial Park Ltd. v Mogil Modular Structures Corp., 2018 BCSC 302 (CanLII):

This is not a case where either there has been an extensive delay of two and-a-half years to three years such as that noted in the decision in Canadian National Railway Co v. Chiu, 2014 BCSC 75 (para. 16). Inordinate delay is assessed on a case-by-case basis and for the case at bar, despite it is argued by the plaintiff that this case is not a complex one for the purposes of the summary trial application, it does not mean that this matter is not being carried along expeditiously.
