The third case to cite a law blog for legal analysis in Canada

Herbison v. Canada (Attorney General), 2013 BCSC 2020 (CanLII)
As of late, a couple of instances of law blogs being cited have come to light within the CanLII Connects forum. Sarah Sutherland just posted a second instance of a superior Canadian court citing a law blog, this time a SLAW post by Alice Woolley, a day after I posted about JP Boyd's citation.
Herbison v. Canada (Attorney General), 2013 BCSC 2020, which was released late in 2013, turns out to be the third instance of a law blog being cited for legal analysis in Canada. This pertains to the Meads decision (Meads v. Meads, 2012 ABQB 571), and "Organized Pseudolegal Commercial Argument Litigants".
Amazingly, the blog post cited by The Honourable Mr. Justice A. Saunders is also a post by Alison Woolley (co-authored by her colleague Jonnette Watson Hamilton), "What has Meads v. Meads Wrought".
