The following excerpt is from Law Society of Upper Canada v. Piersanti, 2016 ONLSTH 169 (CanLII):

The starting principle for an award of costs, as established in Law Society of Upper Canada v. Baker[1] is: “The financial burden for the prosecution of a member should not rest on the profession generally.” We find no compelling reason to depart from this general principle in the present case.
