cover and asked for a direction allowing its acceptance.

RE : Allan J. Harris v. AGC (A-258-18)
The Court notes that the appellant's memorandum has been
presented for filing one day late and has the wrong cover
colour. On this one occasion, this Court is prepared to
overlook this minor non-compliance and directs the Registry
to accept it for filing.
For the purposes of calculating the deadline for the filing
of the respondent's memorandum, the filing of the
appellant's memorandum is deemed to have taken place as of
JCT: I didn't think the court would reject it over the non-
beige cover but the only reason that it was a day late was
because the clerk wouldn't accept it without proof that the
Crown had allowed email service.
We didn't know Jeff had to file a copy of the email. So Jeff
faxed the registry a copy of the email when he got home but
still on the last day he could file. The next day he called
and mentioned how the acceptance of service had been faxed
on time for the memorandum to be accepted. So that's why it
was a day late.
So there was no real reason not to file it on the right date
but for the beige cover. And the judge skipped that
