... what's this?
history / delayed discovery paras 10-30
. Sosnowski v. MacEwen Petroleum Inc.
In Sosnowski v. MacEwen Petroleum Inc. (Ont CA, 2019) the Court of Appeal


. Tomec v. Economical Mutual Insurance Company
In Tomec v. Economical Mutual Insurance Company (Ont CA, 2019) the Court of Appeal commented as follows on whether discoverability applies to Insurance Act and SABS (auto insurance) limitations: paras 27-55

. Pioneer Corp. v. Godfrey
In Pioneer Corp. v. Godfrey (Ont CA, 2019) the Supreme Court of Canada discusses two aspects of the law of limitations: 1. discoverability [paras 31-50] and 2. 'fraudulent concealment' [paras 52-53] as it acts as a form of equitable fraud as a time-extending factor in limitations law.

Special Circumstances
. Strathan Corporation v. KhanIn Strathan Corporation v. Khan (Ont CA, 2019) the Court of Appeal the court confirmed to abolition of the doctrine of "special circumstances" in limitations law:
[8] In our view, the motion judge made no error of law in reaching his decision. In fact, we agree with it. As this court held in Joseph v. Paramount Canada’s Wonderland, 2008 ONCA 469 (CanLII), 90 O.R. (3d) 401, the Limitations Act, 2002 abolished the common law “special circumstances” exception, which permitted the court to extend or suspend the running of a limitation period based on special circumstances. The assertion of a new cause of action in the Second Strathan Action is clearly statute barred.

65. Cosentino v. S. Cosentino Leasing, 2010 ONSC 2611 (Ont Div Ct, 2010) - discussion of when limitation period commences running for solicitor when suing client on bill; possible variation under old and new (2002) Limitation Acts

XX. The expiry of a limitation period is a defence to an action that must be pleaded in a statement of defence: see Beardsley v. Ontario, 2001 CanLII 8621 (ON CA), [2001] O.J. No. 4574 (C.A.), at para. 21 and S.(W.E.) v. P.(M.M.) (2000), 2000 CanLII 16831 (ON CA), 50 O.R. (3d) 70 (C.A.), at paras. 37-38. As such, discoverability, which is relevant to the limitations defence, need not be anticipated by a plaintiff and addressed in her statement of claim: see Huang v. Mai, 2014 ONSC 1156 (CanLII), 119 O.R. (3d) 117, at para 27 and Metropolitan Toronto Condominium Corp. No. 1352 v. Newport Beach Development Inc., 2012 ONCA 850 (CanLII), [2012] O.J. No. 5682, at para. 116.
