Sheets v Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, [1984] OJ No 1339 (ONSC)

This is an application for judicial review in which the applicant seeks to set aside orders requiring the applicant to pay certain costs to the OSPCA for the care of the applicant’s horses. This application is based on two grounds: (1) that there is no evidence to warrant the finding that the cost should be on the basis of $6 per day per annum; and (2) that the judge had no jurisdiction to make the order which required the payment by the applicant.

After reviewing the evidence, the court finds that there was evidence to warrant the finding that the cost should be on the basis of $6 per day per annum. Additionally, after considering the entire purpose of the Act, the court was of the opinion that the judge did have jurisdiction to make the order in question.

There are no costs ordered.
