Case Conference Boots Support Person

During today's case conference in room 23 of the court house in Ottawa at approximately 10:00am, a case conference was held in deciding a CFSA matter.

The C.A.S. Lawyer requested that the Agency Client's support person be removed from the court house and Justice Shefield complied ordering that support person to leave.

I will look into this matter, and report back later. In the Attourney General's web site it states that people in a case conference are allowed to have a support person present.

Can there be a claim made against the CAS for demanding that a support person be removed from a case conference?
