Abstract

The reader is possibly familiar by now with the British Colombia Law Institute (BLI)'s "Report on Proposals for Unfair Contracts Relief" ("the Report"). At the heart of the Report is a significant law-reform recommendation in the mould of draft legislation: A proposed Contract Fairness Act for British Columbia (the proposed Act). Much of the proposed Act is designed to "guard against exploitation,"' and its provisions are to be mandatory. The aim of the reforms, however, is not to effectuate a radical overhaul or complete codification of all contract law's general rules dealing with unfairness.
