The Clancy Brion Raffoul team has been busy lately volunteering for a new charitable organization, Can’t Dim My Light, led by the Ottawa Senators Captain Erik Karlsson and his wife Melinda Karlsson. Erik and Melinda are passionate about this new cause that focuses on raising awareness of bullying and cyber-bullying with children and delivering programs that address and counteract its harmful effects. Our managing partner, Natalie Raffoul, worked with Melinda on a previous charity, and was excited to take an active role with Melinda to launch this inaugural event for Can’t Dim Light. The Walk Of Light was held on Sunday, September 9th, 2018, with over 700 people participating.
The CBR team was active in volunteering with the raffle and registration on Sunday night, as well as helping in the days leading up to the event. The Brion Raffoul team managed to pack over 500 gift bags for participants at the finish line, and we have the pictures to prove it!
We look forward to supporting the many initiatives of Can’t Dim My Light, including an annual Walk Of Light, in the coming years.

In an exciting decision released today, the Supreme Court of Canada eliminates the Promise Doctrine in Canadian patent law, which was established by the Federal Courts of Canada some years ago.
Under the Promise Doctrine, patents could be invalidated if they did not live up to all of the promises made in the patent, such as to a particular utility or advantage. To the delight of many patent holders, the Supreme Court finds that a single use related to the nature of the subject matter is sufficient, and that utility must be established by either demonstration or sound prediction as of the filing date. The Court also confirms that a patent holder is not required to disclose the utility of the invention. For the full decision: https://scc-csc.lexum.com/scc-csc/scc-csc/en/item/16713/index.do
