Patent and Pervasive


Counsel for the applicant submitted that there was no case law defining “patent” and “pervasive”. I disagree. The [Labour Relations] Board’s decisions make clear that an error must be apparent on the face of the award (that is be patent) and must go to the heart of the basis for the decision (that is be pervasive).
