Ontario, Canada

The following excerpt is from Seabrook et al. v. Murison et al., 2021 ONSC 7892 (CanLII):

In Fragomeni v. Greater Sudbury Police Service, 2015 ONSC 3937, the court held that it was insufficient to allege what are effectively conclusions of law, without the necessary factual underpinnings. Allegations in the nature of assumptions or speculations are not to be taken as true. Bald allegations unsupported by pleading material facts in support are not taken to be proven.
