Matters of General Importance



With respect to Rule 62.02(4)(b) [of the Rules of Civil Procedure, R.R.O. 1990, Reg. 194], I do not accept that this appeal meets the second partof the test for leave to appeal under that sub rule. This appeal does not raise matters of such importance that leave to appeal should be granted. In Greslik v. Ontario Legal Aid Plan (1989), 65 O.R. (2d) 110 (Ont. Div. Ct) the Divisional Court found that this aspect of the test refers to “matters of general importance not matters of particular importance, relevant only to the litigants. General importance relates to matters of public importance and matters relevant to the development of the law and the administration of justice.”
