Jurisdiction - Venue - Forum Conveniens

West Van Inc. v. Daisley (Ont CA, 2014)

In this case the Court of appeal extensively considered the 'necessity' exception to the normal forum conveniens test of "real and substantial connection" when deciding if a case was properly heard in Ontario, as opposed to another jurisdiction (see paras 17-38 especially).
