    Blanchette v. Rona Inc.

    Consumer credit – NOTICE OF DISCONTINUANCE AUTHORIZED BY THE SUPERIOR COURT

    NOTICE OF DISCONTINUANCE AUTHORIZED BY THE SUPERIOR COURT

    On July 26th, 2002, Applicant Daniel Blanchette filed an application for authorization to institute a class action against Respondent Rona Inc.

    The Applicant alleges that the Respondent made certain forms of credit available to its consumers in order to purchase its products, and that its advertisements to this effect contravened several provisions of the Consumer Protection Act (C.Q.L.R. c. P-40.1) and of the Regulation Respecting the Application of the Consumer Protection Act.

    The Applicant initially suspended his file for the duration of another proceeding raising similar legal issues. Subsequently, discussions with the Respondent convinced the Applicant that it was in interest of justice that he discontinue his suit given that, among other factors, a very limited number of people had used the credit that was the subject of his application.

    On August 18th, 2016, the Honourable Pierre-C. Gagnon of the Superior Court authorized the Applicant to discontinue his action. You can consult Mr. Justice Gagnon’s decision here. This file is now closed.
