TORONTO - A battle over documents between the owners of the doomed Algo Centre Mall in Elliot Lake, Ont., and the judicial inquiry probing its collapse is being turned over to a judge.
At issue are about 600 documents the Nazarian family is refusing to hand over to the commission. The Nazarians argue the letters and emails are privileged and should remain confidential.
The commission, which argues the Nazarians have provided no evidence to back their assertion of privilege, has asked Appeal Court Justice Stephen Goudge to rule on the issue.
