67. Two or more persons, whose claims have the same juridical basis or raise the same points of law and fact, may join in the same suit. The suit must be instituted before the Court of Québec, if that court has jurisdiction in each of the claims; otherwise it must be instituted before the Superior Court.
At any time before the hearing, the court may order that claims joined in virtue of this article be disjoined, if it is of opinion that the interests of justice will thus be better served.
Unless the court orders otherwise, unsuccessful co-plaintiffs are jointly and severally liable for the costs.
