“Court offers guidance on qualification of government employees” by Yamri Taddese, Law Times Law Times quotes Norm Keith in an article about the law around the impartiality of expert witnesses.

“It’s huge. Many provincial government departments have in-house engineers or other technical people that they’d probably want to use as experts, but this ruling puts a bit of a damper on that,” says Norm Keith, a partner at Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP.

“In this case, the Ministry of Labour engineer is not allowed to be an investigator or a fact finder and also put on a different hat and be an independent, impartial engineering expert,” he adds.
