clear limitation periods for government's independent claims under HCCRA

In HMTQ v. Beacon Community Services Society, 2012 BCSC 144, the government's independent action for recovery of health care costs pursuant to the Health Care Costs Recovery Actwas dismissed as time barred.  In calculating the applicable limitation period in section 8 of the HCCRA, the Court was not persuaded by the government's discoverability argument, noting instead that time cannot be postponed indefinitely, and that the legislature intended that the clear limitation periods set out in s. 8 should prevail.
