  • 2145850 Ontario Limited v. Student Transportation, 2012 ONSC 6865: In the first decision considering the scope of Section 22 of the Broader Public Sector Accountability Act, the Superior Court of Justice rejected an argument that the statute provided immunity to public sector organizations for breaches of the duty of fairness in procurement.  The court also ruled that a trial was necessary to determine the scope of the legislation and in particular to determine whether or not the legislation removed the common law remedies of interim and permanent injunctions for those who suffer harm as a result of unlawful or unfair procurement.  A trial date on behalf of a group of pupil transportation companies against various school boards has been set for June 2013.  The case and this decision have significant implications for Ontario’s public procurement process across all industries.  LOSL acts for pupil transportation companies across the province and has challenged the fairness and propriety of RFP processes undertaken by a number of school boards across the province.
