Thalidomide Survivors Contribution Program Class Action, March 5, 2019
March 5, 2019
The Dispute Resolution Conference scheduled for March 12, 2019 has now been adjourned by the Court to a date to be determined in April 2019. The Attorney General of Canada refuses to discuss the issues of eligibility and evidentiary requirements with the court-appointed representative of those rejected from the Thalidomide Survivors Contribution Plan before it announces details of the revised program for compensation for those persons. The Representative Applicant’s attempts to seek meaningful direct consultation with the Attorney General of Canada about the eligibility and evidentiary requirements on behalf of those rejected from the Thalidomide Survivors Contribution Plan have been rebuffed.
