2018 – The Supreme Court of British Columbia awards $1,350,000.00 in punitive and aggravated damages against the Canada Revenue Agency for “high-handed, reprehensible and malicious” conduct, in addition to special damages of $347,731.74.  The Honourable Mr. Justice Punnett concludes that “The conduct was highly blameworthy as it engaged core values in our society and the checks and balances that exist when invoking the power of the State against the individual”.  See: Samaroo v.
