Does the late filing of an expert report under the BCSC's Disjunctive Expert Report Rule permit late filing?

British Columbia, Canada

The following excerpt is from Cambie Surgeries Corporation v British Columbia (Attorney General), 2018 BCSC 1146 (CanLII):

As can be seen this Rule permits the late filing of expert reports in three circumstances: new facts have arisen, prejudice is unlikely or the interests of justice require it. These are disjunctive so that only one need be established (2016 BCSC 2376, at para. 13; citing Perry v. Vargas, 2012 BCSC 1537, at paras. 14-15).
