Article Summary: 

The article discusses the issue of solicitor-client privilege in the condominium context, particularly with respect to requests by unit owners to access documents belonging to the corporation. The article highlights an Ontario case, Gale v Halton Condominium Corporation No. 61, which addressed the right of unit owners to access the corporation's redacted legal bills. The Ontario Superior Court confirmed that the communication by the corporation amounted to a waiver of privilege over the legal bills, as it targeted specific individuals by suggesting they acted unreasonably. The case emphasizes the significance of communication by condo corporations to unit owners, and the need for caution in disclosing information.
