The appeal in the Moore vrs. 407ETR by the Superintendent of Bankruptcy will take place June 10, 2013, at 10:30 a.m., at the Court of Appeal, 130 Queen Street West, Toronto.  Class Action Lawyers Scarfone Hawkins LLP have been granted intervener status in this case.

According to Scarfone Hawkins website, the Class Action is still waiting to be certified, but the Statement of Claim includes declaratory relief, an injunction and damages for abuse of process, breach of contract, restitution and unjust enrichment for $25 million dollars.
The Statement of Claim alleges that 407 ETR unlawfully uses its Vehicle Permit renewal denial remedy to coerce payment of claims provable in bankruptcy which are subject to a Stay of Proceedings or were otherwise compromised and/or released by operation of the BIA.

The group “Stop the 407ETR’s Abuse of Power” is watching this case closely as they are hopeful if it is successful, it will be the start of opening the way for them to see some justice for other victims of 407ETR’s shady business practices.

With all the talk of tolls coming our way throughout the GTHA, it’s important to address the outstanding issues that still exist with this company.  When the Liberals first took power, Dalton McGuinty promised to fix these problems.  Then Transportation Minister Harinder Takhar ordered an investigative review of consumer complaints against the operator of Highway 407.  It was done because there are provisions to renegotiate the concessions contract.  MPP Mike Cole spear headed that investigation.  The government found themselves in court and rather than making sure the issues were dealt with, they settled with this company.  Now the customer service issues are worse than ever.  People are being charged thousands and thousands of dollars that they don’t owe.  The Ministry of Transportation has not responded to what they are going to do about this.  Hopefully this court case will change that.
If you can make it to the court house on June 10th it would be great to see a rally of support as this moves forward.  Also, don’t forget to sign and share the petition
