2019-01-14 Decision on miscellaneous motion, Ga Côt Br Row Mar,
The motion to stay the declaration of invalidity made in the judgment of the Court Martial Appeal Court of Canada, Number CMAC-588, 2018 CMAC 4, dated September 19, 2018, was heard on January 14, 2019, and the Court on that day delivered the following order orally:

GASCON J. — We are all of the view that the Crown’s motion to stay the declaration of invalidity in the Court Martial Appeal Court judgment of September 19, 2018, should be dismissed.

The applicable criteria set out in Manitoba (Attorney General) v. Metropolitan Stores Ltd., [1987] 1 S.C.R. 110, and RJR — MacDonald Inc. v. Canada (Attorney General), [1994] 1 S.C.R. 311, are not in dispute. The Crown has failed in our view to establish that the balance of convenience favours granting the stay sought.

The motion is therefore dismissed.
