How much will this cost taxpayers?

Good Day Readers:

A special thank you to Kari Simpson of RoadKill Radio (www.roadkillradio.com), Drive For Justice (www.driveforjustice.com) and now RoadKill Radio News (www.roadkillradionews.com) for sending CyberSmokeBlog an update from a couple Federal Court of Canada files concerning the Douglas Inquiry. CSB has expanded the terse, abbreviation laden court language were necessary to make it more readable.

There will be a meeting in Toronto on Friday, November 30, 2012 in which the FCC will consider applications for at least three judicial reviews related to decisions made by the Inquiry Commission. Below is the latest list of documents filed. Trying to figure out what's happening is like unravelling a bowel of spaghetti.

File Number: T-1567-12

Style of Cause (i.e. Cover Page): The Honourable Lori Douglas versus Attorney General of Canada
Proceeding Category: Application for Judicial Review under Section 18.1 of The Federal Courts Act

Document Number 34: Montreal Notice of Motion contained within a Motion Record on behalf of the new Independent Counsel (Suzanne Cote - Osler Law Firm, Montreal) at Special Sitting in Toronto on November 30, 2012 to begin at 9:30 for an Order granting leave to new Independent Counsel to intervene in the present proceedings.

Document Number 35: Montreal Affidavit of France Boulais sworn on November 23, 2012 contained within a Motion Record on behalf of the new Independent Counsel in support of Motion Document Number 34 with Exhibits "A" and "B" filed on November 23, 2012.

Document Number 36: Montreal written Representations contained within a Motion Record on behalf of the new Independent Counsel considering Motion Document Number 34 filed on November 23, 2012.

Document Number 37: Montreal Motion Record containing the following original document(s): three copies of documents numbers 34, 35, 36 received on behalf of the new Independent Counsel filed on November 23, 2012.

Document Number 38: Montreal solicitor's Certificate of Service on behalf of Alexandre Fallon confirming Service of Motion Record (for Document Number 37) upon applicant by messenger on November 23, 2012 and filed on November 23, 2012.

Document Number 39: Montreal solicitor's Certificate of Service on behalf of Alexandre Fallon confirming Service of Motion Record (for Document Number 37) upon Respondent by electronic mail on November 23, 2012 filed on November 23, 2012.

Document Number 40: Montreal Book of Authorities consisting of 1 volume on behalf of the new Independent Counsel received on November 23, 2012. Sent directly to presiding Judge.

File Number T-1789-12
Style of Cause: Alexander Chapman versus Attorney General of Canada et. al.
Proceeding Category: Application for a Section 18.1 Judicial Review under The Canada Courts Act
Type of Action: Non-Action

On November 22, 2012 Chief Justice Crampton decided (without personal appearances by any of the parties) under Rule 383 of The Federal Courts Act that Prothonotary Judge Mireille Tabib will be assigned as the Case Management Judge for the November 30, 2012 meeting.

About all that can be gleaned from the above is a lot of paperwork has been filed for the November 30, 2012 meeting in Toronto and from the above filings the lawyer representing new Independent Counsel Suzanne Cote has been very busy.

Sincerely,
Clare L. Pieuk
