Crown Law for the respondent

[1] On 9 April 2015, I refused the application for judicial review of the decision of the respondent Board.  I directed that any submissions as to costs be made in writing.  The Board seeks its costs upon the basis that it was successful in the proceeding.  There is no submission for the applicant. 

[2] Costs should follow the event.  The applicant may be unable to pay the costs but that is an insufficient reason not to make the order.
