Canadian National Railway Company v. Western Grain Cleaning & Processing Ltd., 2010 SKQB 59 (CanLII)

  • February 12, 2010

Date: 2010-02-12 Docket: Q.B.G. No. 1455 of 2008  Currie J. | Link

Among other components in the decision, the court deals with the defendant's request for better document disclosure and production. At para 32, the court summarizes the complaint. " Western Grain says that CNR's document disclosure to date largely relates only to CNR's claim, ignoring the issues raised in Western Grain's statement of defence and counterclaim. CNR responds that the allegations in the defence and counterclaim are set out too broadly to permit CNR to discern which of CNR's documents are relevant for discovery." "The list of documents that Western Grain has asked CNR to disclose does not assist in obtaining an understanding of the kinds of documents that actually are relevant to issues pleaded by Western Grain."
