I'm writing you with a quick update about the Cambie Surgeries Corp. trial: due to multiple procedural issues, the judge has agreed to adjourn the trial until September 5, 2017.
Brian Day's plaintiffs have been consistently unprepared in their submissions to the court and late to supply the rest of the parties with the information we need to prepare our responses. Therefore, the province (the Defendants) asked to adjourn so that things can move along more smoothly when we get back to court in September.
The idea is that the delay will give Brian Day's plaintiffs time to prepare the rest of their witnesses and submissions, and the province time to prepare accordingly. The parties will also sort out... a number of procedural areas of contention.
As far as we understand, this delay will not increase our legal costs as intervenors, however we still need to raise funds to cover the cost of defending public health care in court.
We'll let you know as soon as we have any further updates.
Thank you for your continued support in this ongoing journey to defend public health care,
