Huronia Centre Lawsuit Delayed

Orillia | by Jim Birchard  

Class action lawsuit into alleged abuse at Huronia Regional Centre is delayed.

There's been a delay in the case of a class action lawsuit into alleged abuse at the Huronia Regional Centre in Orillia.

The two billion dollar lawsuit against the Ontario government was filed on behalf of thousands of former residents and their relatives.

Some former residents of the facility for developmentally disabled people say they're disappointed about the delay.

The case was set to begin Monday in a Toronto court but was adjourned until Tuesday.

No reason was given for the change.

The announcement came as a surprise to the dozens of people who showed up for the hearing, with at least one bursting into tears outside the courtroom.

The government denies the allegations, which have not been proven in court.
