(Administrative law / Procedural fairness)
SAAQ contracted with C's employer to run vehicle inspections.  C did not sign this contract, but was designated as an "accredited mechanic" in the contract.  C's accreditation was ultimately revoked by SAAQ, meaning that he could no longer work for his employer.  C and his employer applied to overturn the revocation, arguing that C was denied procedural fairness.  The majority held that C was not a party to the contract, but that he was entitled to procedural fairness under the relevant Quebec statute.
Majority/Dissent: 6/3
