Unrealistic Expectations Get You Nowhere

Article Summary: 

The article discusses a case involving Mr. Jack Gale, a litigant who has repeatedly brought complaints to the Condominium Authority Tribunal (CAT) regarding records requests made to Halton Condominium Corporation No. 61. Mr. Gale's latest complaint was about the adequacy of the board meeting minutes, but the CAT found his claims to be without merit. Instead, the CAT determined that his real issue was with the governance of HCC 61, and his submissions went beyond the scope of a records case. After dismissing the application, the CAT considered whether Mr. Gale's conduct made him a vexatious litigant and found that he had been using the CAT to harass and undermine the board. As a result, he was ordered to pay $2,000 in costs, signaling that unrealistic expectations and attempts to abuse the system will not be tolerated by the CAT.
