Police take Court Action against Ontario Government over COVID Measures Enforcement Duties

PUBLISHED: MAY 4, 2021 | by the Constitutional Rights Centre

This is the press conference of the application by police officers filed with the Superior Court to clarify their duties, discretion and obligations under the COVID Measures.

The day after we served the Notice of Application, lawyers for the Attorney General wrote a letter to the Court, for the Court to issue an order to show cause as to why the Court should not dismiss the case, on the “Court’s own motion”, for being a “frivolous, vexatious and abusive” case, pursuant to Rule 2.1.

The Crown lawyers do not provide a basis as to why it is so we can respond, but if an order is issued, we are allotted 10 pages maximum, to disprove that it is not “frivolous, vexatious and abusive”, without the benefit of reference to evidence not yet filed.

Their Notice of Application can be viewed on the Constitutional Rights Centre website at:
