A Fredericton doctor complained to the NB Human Rights Commission (See October 28, 2008). After investigation, the Commission recommended that the complaint proceed to a hearing, and a Board of Inquiry was appointed. The province objected, on the basis that the Board did not have jurisdiction to hear the complaint. The Board held a hearing on these preliminary issues and concluded that the complaint could proceed to a hearing on the merits. The province sought a judicial review of the Board’s decision.
