What common issues apply to a class action?

Saskatchewan, Canada

The following excerpt is from Schneider v Royal Crown Gold Reserve Inc, 2012 SKQB 111 (CanLII):

The common issues requirement is directed at whether allowing the matter to proceed as a class action will avoid duplication of fact‑finding or legal analysis. The issue will be common if its resolution is necessary to the resolution of each class member’s claim and is a substantial ingredient of that claim (Hollick v. Toronto (City), 2001 SCC 68, [2001] 3 S.C.R. 158, at para. 18).
