Update on Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Auto Manufacturers

If you have imported a vehicle from the US into Canada, this update may affect you.


Dear Vehicle Importer:

Thank you for your continued interest in the progress of our claim against the auto manufacturers.

At the time we commenced our lawsuit, a similar suit was commenced in Ontario, and we have been asked to join forces with that Ontario firm.

In order to join forces we have agreed to discontinue the claim in British Columbia. We believe that by this partnership we have a better chance of wining this David & Goliath battle.

These lawsuits are usually strenuously defended and can take years to wind their way though the legal system, so we ask you for your patience and continued interest. We will endeavor to provide monthly updates so that you can follow the progress of this lawsuit as it works its way through the court system.

Kindest regards,

Wm. Rory Lambert

Dinning Hunter Lambert & Jackson

Can anyone tell me whether we (potential "joiners" of the lawsuit) need to contact the Ontario lawyers?


Thanks for your post.

We will post more information as we receive updates from both sets of law firms. At this time we ask that you compile all your documentation and costs and keep them ready to send off as and when required.

This is a long process, but we will do our best to keep our readers updated.

Please see for lawsuit-specific updates and to record your import story for others to read and respond to.
