“Homeopathic remedies in legal hot water in U.S. but face scant Canadian pushback” by Vik Adhopia, CBC News.

CBC News quotes Montréal lawyer André Durocher in an article regarding the legal backlash of Canadian companies selling homeopathic remedies and the difficulty for class-action lawsuit to succeed in Canada.

 

André Durocher, partner at Fasken Martineau, says the legal climate in the US makes consumer class actions, such as those against makers of homeopathic products, more likely.

 

But André Durocher, who has defended corporate clients in Canada, said he’s not surprised there have been so many class actions against makers of homeopathic products in the U.S. compared to the situation here.

 

“They’re a more litigious society south of the border,” he said.
