New Brunswick, [2008] 1 S.C.R. 190, 2008 SCC 9, and subsequent cases. To that end, the appellants and respondent are invited to address the question of standard of review in their written and oral submissions on the appeal, and shall be allowed to file and serve a factum on appeal of at most 45 pages.
