    “In general, the applicant is taken by surprise, but more particularly by the production of the report of Loto-Quebec as they are incomplete, they should be the subject of a request for further information” and that an expert might even be necessary at the hearing.

    According to Me Harvey, the disclosure late evidence also important and essential is “unforgivable” and “the only appropriate remedy in these circumstances is the exclusion of evidence” was disclosed late.
