Rob Danter of Harrison Pensa LLP comments on the “Impact of COVID-19 on Receivership Proceedings”.  Surprisingly, there hasn’t been a lot of case law to date that supports the failing of businesses due entirely to COVID-19.  With the prolonged lockdown, Rob believes that we will likely see more receivership applications and proceedings in the future, and more case law. 

Linda Smits of McKenzie Lake Lawyers LLP provides a case comment on C.M. Callow Inc. v Zollinger.  Find out whether silence impacts the contract!  This case of the Supreme Court of Canada delves into the duty of honest performance, and what that means.
