David Sterns: Bill 161 will shut the door of the courts on the most vulnerable people in our society
On June 11th, David Sterns appeared before the Ontario Legislative Assembly’s Standing Committee on Justice Policy to give testimony on proposed amendments to the Class Proceedings Act. David warned the Committee that Bill 161 will shut the door of the courts on the most vulnerable people in our society:
• It will limit the ability of individuals and small businesses to obtain compensation for wrongs done to them by companies, including foreign companies.
• It will re-victimize marginalized groups.
• And it will create barriers to justice for residents of this province that exist nowhere else in Canada.
