Robinson v. Nova Scotia Power Inc. et al. 2012 NSCA 93
Administrative Law - Judicial review - General - Scope or standard of review
The Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board dismissed an appeal by Robinson concerning the payment of a portion of the arrears she said were incurred by her partner, Hogan, before she moved in with him. The Board affirmed an earlier decision of Nova Scotia Power Inc. and found that the Utility had properly applied its own statutory regulations when considering Robinson’s request for electric service. Robinson appealed the Board’s decision. Her ground of appeal was that the Board “erred by unreasonably and incorrectly interpreting Section 2.1 of the Nova Scotia Power Regulations”.
