I have reviewed the affidavit of service and I must say that I have grave doubts as to its accuracy. According to the affidavit of service, an attempt at personal service was made in respect of each of the 115 corporate defendants located at a wide variety of addresses in locations throughout Ontario over only three days. According to the affidavit, [the plaintiff] personally attended at 115 different addresses ranging from the Ottawa to Chatham, Hamilton to Niagara Falls; Scarborough to Burlington and numerous points in between. A virtually identical application (Fraasko v. 911908 Ontario Limited et al,) alleged service upon a further 10 corporations on the same dates, adding stop-offs in Barrie, Sarnia and various addresses in Toronto. While Santa Claus has perfected the art of visiting millions of homes in a single night[the plaintiff]'s affidavit of service makes no claim to having enlisted such assistance in effecting such a miracle of personal service.
