Symtron (No. 1)
Peter Simm researched and wrote the winning Factums for the Respondents on two jointly-heard judicial review applications in Symtron (No. 1) (1999, F.C.A.).
Symtron is a leading authority on the standard for judicial review of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal, and was unanimously applied by the Supreme Court of Canada in 2009. It has likewise been cited by the Federal Court of Appeal on the doctrine of functus officio . Establishing that NAFTA can be used to challenge a flawed governmental procurement process, Symtron also gives important guidance on CITT powers to award meaningful remedies.
This case is cited in 21 judicial decisions, of which 17 were by appellate courts, most recently the Federal Court of Appeal in 2018. As well, Symtron is cited in 11 CITT decisions, 11 legal textbooks (including 4 foreign books), and in 4 law journal papers. Additionally, this case is cited in an official Report by the (U.S.) Library of Congress summarizing Government Procurement Law in Canada.
