From the Supreme Court of British Columbia:
There continues to be a significant volume of lengthy chambers applications (over 2 hours) in civil chambers in Vancouver with the result that matters are frequently bumped or counsel adjorn as it becomes apparent from the state of the list that a matter may not get heard . In 2013 a chambers assize was initiated on a pilot basis to deal with the volume and ensure matters get heard. The chambers assize is now being continued indefinitely.
