THE ADVOCATE 637
VOL. 78 PART 4 JULY 2020
In Dr. Morgan Campbell Inc. v. Towers, 1997 CanLII 798 (B.C.S.C.), where the
plaintiff sought an interlocutory order to enjoin dealing with certain property,
McEwan J. held that “a flat assertion of the plaintiff’s absolute best
‘blue sky’ projection of damages, particularly where that assertion is potentially
undermined by the applicant’s own pleadings, does not, in respect of
damages, contribute to a persuasive case for the extraordinary remedy the
plaintiff seeks” (para. 15).
