Reasons on Monday from a 4-day trial in March, 2012: Fancy v. Gareau, 2014 BCSC 584.  The plaintiff claimed to be injured in a September, 2008, accident.  However, her evidence was wholly inconsistent with forms she had completed for WorkSafeBC regarding a workplace accident she had had some months prior.

[84]         At the very least her evidence as to her symptoms and when they arose are unreliable but, in my view, they are calculated to advance the financial interests of herself and her husband.

Rejecting the plaintiff’s evidence in its entirety, as well as that of her partner, the Court dismissed the claim.
