In any event, relying on authorities such as Sussex Group Ltd. v. 3933938 Canada Inc. (c.o.b. Global Export Consulting) (2003), 124 A.C.W.S. (3d) 274 (Ont. S.C.) (“Sussex”), Miller, and Garley v. Gabai-Maiato, 2006 ONCJ 28, the motion judge held that in circumstances in which the underlying order is considered “ineffective”, the appropriate course of action is not disobedience. The appropriate course of action is either to move for directions as soon as the problem becomes apparent, as the motion judge had expressly invited the parties to do, or appeal.
