Citation of Authorities to ABQB

The Alberta Court of Queen's Bench has officially adopted the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation 7th edition. See the Notice to the Profession from November 12, 2013.

I am happy to have clarification from the Court about citations, but kind of surprised by their choice to adopt this fairly controversial edition - especially considering the 8th edition will be released in the near future.

Interested to know why it's controversial. The periods?

Hi Jason, When the 7th edition came out, it was clear that the major departure from the previous editions (no punctuation) was a surprise to many - including some of the courts that were listed as adopting the Guide.
