What are the costs of the respondent wife in a personal injury case?

Saskatchewan, Canada

The following excerpt is from Richardson v Richardson et al, 1971 CanLII 832 (SK QB):

There remains only the matter of costs. The petitioner did not in his petition ask for costs from the respondent wife. She, however, asked in her answer for costs against the petitioner. I drew attention to the new approach to allowing costs to a wife in Schartner v. Schartner (1970), 1970 CanLII 590 (SK QB), 10 D.L.R. (3d) 61, 72 W.W.R. 443. The said respondent has a business of her own and receives the profits therefrom. While she has been successful in obtaining the custody of her daughter, on the other hand the petitioner has obtained a decree of divorce against her. In the circumstances of this case and as between the petitioner and the respondent wife I think it is fair to direct that there will be no order for costs in favour of either of them.
