NS Dad ordered to pay one of largest Custody Awards ever

Mother wins $13.4 million in child support settlement from Nova Scotia developer after lengthy court battle.

Hard to tell exactly what precipitated such a large award - but clearly the Dad was not incented to litigate the case.  He decamped some time ago and appears negotiated with his Ex from the safety of a foreign country without an enforceable extradition treaty with Canada. 

And he was a millionaire. 

That helps.

Not sure I trust the rather biased article given most commentary was from Mom's lawyer.

What needs to asked is - does this kind of award indicate Canada is no better/worse than other international jurisdiction like London UK or Florida/California USA when it comes to insane child custody awards?
