CASE LAW - R v Taylor
Jewel Taylor was issued a 3 count violation ticket in North Vancouver and in February of 2016 paid the fines shown on the ticket. She subsequently received a bill from ICBC for the point penalties involved totalling $640. Shortly after that she applied for an extension of time to appeal her conviction. She was 18 months late in doing so according to the Criminal Rules of the Supreme Court of British Columbia.
In this case, Madam Justice Gropper examines the factors that are to be considered when the court is asked to extend the limit of time for appeal. Ms. Taylor did not meet them and was unsuccessful in having the extension granted.
