Humble v. The "Queen of Alberni"

In Admiralty Practice, Stays of Proceedings on (Updated )

This was an application by the Defendant for a stay of the Plaintiff’s action on the grounds that there were similar actions pending in the Federal Court of Canada. The Defendant wanted all actions consolidated. The British Columbia Supreme Court refused the application on the basis that the Plaintiff’s claim might be time barred in the Federal Court and the Federal Court actions concerned some matters which were not relevant to the Plaintiff.
