No appearance for the applicant

Crown Solicitor for the respondent

[1] On 27 September 2011, I ordered that the application for statutory order of review be dismissed.  The respondent’s lawyer sought costs.  Because the applicant is a prisoner without legal representation, I requested the respondent’s lawyer to provide him with a submission on costs allowing him time to respond.  Those submissions were served on 29 September 2011.  No response has been received. 

[2] There is no reason why costs should not follow the event.  The applicant may not be in a position to satisfy this order but that provides no sufficient reason not to make it.  It is ordered that the applicant pay the respondent’s costs of and incidental to the proceedings.
