  • In Wakelam v. Wyeth Consumer Healthcare/Wyeth Soin de Sante Inc., a unanimous division of the Court of Appeal for British Columbia restricted the ability of plaintiffs to claim disgorgement based on statutory causes of action found in the Business Practices and Consumer Protection Act (“BPCPA”) and Competition Act. In so doing, the Court of Appeal reversed the certification of the Wakelam class proceeding by the trial court.
