Will adjudicate the issue of “officially induced error” on April 14, 2005 in the case of A. Stelmaszniski and Revenue Canada

The legal issue to be determined in this case:

“The defense of ‘officially-induced error’ is available as a defense to an alleged violation of a regulatory statute where an accused has reasonably relied upon the erroneous legal opinion or advise of an official who is responsible for the administration or enforcement of the particular law. “

The justice has a hard decision to make on the fundamental justice front - a persons life is at stake which is more important then water damage to a historic building . Maybe she should get the developer to give her avice how to fix the building
