We are continuing research for filing case, hoping to file the case before
the end of 2015. We are accepting all applications for screening, but primarily focusing at
this time of former students that endured the more physical or sexual
abuse while they were at the school.

Once the case is filed in court, we have been notified that it could take
up to 1 to 2 years for the case to be heard, and if the judge was to
award us, there is always a chance that the government would appeal
and therefore delay the case further.

We are planning on filing cases in several provinces, hoping this could
help speed up the process.

If any former students have questions regarding the status of the case,
please ask them to call me on the toll free number 1-877-378-4487.

In the end, we are committed to moving forward on this case, and get
justice for the Day School survivors.
