Judge grants 82-year-old woman advance costs in case rejected by 18 lawyers


An 82-year-old woman from Dalles First Nation in northwestern Ontario will receive $70,000 in advance costs for a court case after a judge heard what he described as a "bizarre and lamentable motion."

Ruth Ann Henry applied to the courts for advance costs in a case that could see former students at the Fort William Indian Hospital Sanatorium School receive compensation under the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement.
