On June 9, 2016, the Supreme Court of Canada dismissed an application for leave to appeal a New Brunswick decision invalidating an NB man’s collection of coins and goods to US-based National Alliance in his will on the basis the information the National Alliance disseminates and its purpose are against Canadian public policy. The estate was appraised at $250,000. First retained in July 2013, McInnes Cooper represented the successful party throughout. The decision sets a national precedent, confirming that there is no room for individuals to gift over their estates to groups that promote hate speech in Canada.
