British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from McDaid v. Bak, 2014 BCSC 2461 (CanLII):

The respondent is making two preliminary objections to this matter proceeding. First, he argues that the notice of application is deficient in not properly setting out the legal basis for the claims advanced. He references several decisions in support of that, including that of Dupre v. Patterson, 2013 BCSC 1561.
