Battle is over Owls Head, a 285-hectare piece of Crown land on Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore
August 5, 2020
In a decision released Wednesday, Nova Scotia Supreme Court Justice Kevin Coady granted Bancroft and the forest watch association more time to file their request for a judicial review.
“The Applicants have a reasonable excuse for the delay,” Justice Coady wrote.
Coady added that the applicants “will suffer prejudice if the extension is not granted” but the respondent “will suffer little prejudice” if it is.
Coady said the case needs to be decided on its merits and not simply because a deadline has passed.
The parties now have 14 days to file their request.
