Title: The Curious Case of Civil Procedure Reform in Canada, So Many Reforms Proposals With So Few Results
Authors: Ghergus, Radu-Razvan
Advisor: Sossin, Lorne
Department: Law
Keywords: civil procedure reform
Issue Date: 19-Jan-2010
Abstract: The subject of my thesis is one which has been subject of many reports of reform of civil justice system across Canada. I consider that the reform of civil justice system is of fundamental importance for our society affecting all the citizens of our country and is, also, a fascinating topic. This thesis examines the changes proposed by Honourable Judge Coulter Osborne through the lens of the reform in civil procedure rules operated in the U.K.as a result of Lord Wolfe’s report because the Canadian justice system is founded upon Anglo-Saxon common law principles. My conclusion is that any substantial reform of the civil justice system must start with an increased role of the judge over the case, in the way promoted in U.K’s Civil Procedure Rules, and that Justice Osborne’s civil justice project still doesn’t propose a much needed overhaul change of Civil Procedure Rules in Ontario.
