UPDATE: AUGUST 9, 2018 On March 14, 2018, the Federal Court issued its order on the remaining issues respecting certification allowing this lawsuit to move forward as a class action. The Government of Canada has appealed portions of that order. A date for the appeal hearing has not yet been set by the Federal Court of Appeal. Once a date has been set, an update will be posted to this website. This is from the Branch MacMaster website.
