Laurentian requests halt to the execution of speaker’s warrant to force disclosure of privileged documents

January 5, 2022
Laurentian University lawyers have requested that the Superior Court of Justice stop the execution of a speaker’s warrant that would force Laurentian to disclose confidential documents by February 1st. Laurentian is reportedly questioning if the Auditor General’s Act gives the Auditor General the power to demand the documents, and arguing that the disclosure could harm Laurentian’s chances of restructuring successfully. Laurentian is also requesting advice and direction if it is required to comply with the warrant, since Laurentian says it is prohibited by the CCAA from providing the information. CBC | CTV News (ON)
