Court dismisses application against Western University

The Democracy Fund (TDF) is disappointed to announce that the application against Western University has been dismissed.

LONDON: Late yesterday, the court released its decision in the lawsuit brought by five Western students against the university for its collection of personal health information under Western's COVID-19 vaccine booster policy. The court found that the collection of students' personal health information is not prohibited by provincial privacy legislation. The applicants' legal team, including TDF lawyer Mark Joseph and Lisa Bildy of Libertas Law, are reviewing the decision and considering whether an appeal is warranted.

A copy of the decision can be found here.

"We’re disappointed in the outcome, but we respect the Court’s decision. We believe strongly in students’ privacy rights, so we’re reviewing it carefully now to decide whether to bring an appeal," says Mark Joseph.
