[continued from previous message]
plaintiffs can be addressed in the context of motions by the
plaintiffs for interim relief.
JCT: Again, other plaintiffs do not impact on Jeff's motion
at all other than also benefiting if they're filed before
Tuesday Oct 30 in order to get the same relief too. And the
only purpose served by connecting two unrelated causes of
action is to delay the second one.
JB: Proposed timetable
Canada proposes the following timetable for next steps in
1. Amended statements of claim
Amended statements of claim (amended to identify the
impugned provisions of the new Cannabis Regulations) -
JCT: We can ask Judge Brown to amend his claim from the
ACMPR section to the Cannabis Act section in a later claim.
JB: 2. Mr. Harris' motion in writing for interim relief
Plaintiffs motion records - November 16
Canada's responding record - December 7
Plaintiffs replies to Canada - December 14
JCT: Jeff's motion is already done except identifying the
Cannabis Act section instead of the ACMPR section in force
when he filed. But Jeff's motion doesn't need to be changed,
so how about the Crown response on Nov 16 and Reply on Nov
JB: 3. Canada's motion to strike
Canada's motion to strike - 30 days from final disposition
of the Harris appeal
JCT: No, they should make their motion to strike as soon as
they can for this 150 gram limit cause of action and not
link it to the delay damages appeal at all. Keeps wanting to
wait for the end of the appeal that has nothing to do with
the 150 gram limit.
JB: Plaintiffs' responses to Canada's motion - 30 days from
service of Canada's motion
Canada's reply to the plaintiffs - 10 days from service of
the last Plaintiffs response
JCT: Whatever, as long as it's not after the damages appeal.
JB: 4. Further steps (if required)
Case management conference to discuss timetable for any
further interlocutory motions, production of documents, and
proposed discovery plan in these and the registration delay
actions - 15 days from final disposition of Canada's motion
JCT: Sure, except for the link to the delay actions.
JB: Yours truly,
Jon Bricker and Wendy Wright
National Litigation Sector
JCT: Stay tuned for Jeff's report after tomorrow's 3pm
hearing where Jeff is still requesting the 10-day supply
right now. The motion is done right, they have it, no need
to wait for their reply if they don't have one now.
