Update to page 184, Case In Point Box entitled “What Is An Unconscionable Bargain? Heller v Uber Technologies Inc.”:

On June 26, 2020, the Supreme Court of Canada dismissed Uber’s appeal. The SCC held that the arbitration provision, contained in a wholly one-sided contract of adhesion, was unconscionable and thus invalid. Accordingly, Mr. Heller’s proposed class action will now proceed in the Ontario courts (Uber Technologies Inc. v Heller, 2020 SCC 16).
