Aslan Electrical, Plumbing, Gas Fitting, Refrigeration and Sheet Metal Services (litigation R us?)

I’m all in favour of a party exercising their rights. The small claims court system in BC is intended to enable people to enforce their rights. If you don’t get paid for work you’ve done, by all means take the other guy to court. Some businesses tend to run into this more than others. I understand this, and expect that they would take steps to enforce their rights. But…. well, there’s a business in Vernon British Columbia, called ASLAN ELECTRICAL, PLUMBING, GASFITTING, REFRIGERATION AND SHEETMETAL SERVICES LTD, (it’s also at times been called Aslan Electrical Services), that has been involved in a remarkable number of small claims cases. How’s approximately 235 cases between January 1, 2006 and September 18, 2016? That’s roughly 23 cases a year. Almost 2 small claims actions started, every month, every single month, for ten years. Now that’s only in the Vernon Court Registry. In Kelowna, during the same time period, the same company has been in involved in 5 small claims actions. In Salmon Arm the same company has been involved in 9 small claims actions.
I’ve never had any work done by Aslan. I’ve never done any work for Aslan. To the best of my knowledge I’ve never met anyone that works for Aslan. Frankly, in light of their remarkable litigation history, I don’t want to.
At this point I would like to state my opinion about this history, but …. I’m afraid they might sue me. I’ll leave you to draw your own conclusions.
