ORDER AND REASONS

I. Overview

[1] The Applicant, Sleep Country Canada Inc. [Sleep Country] seeks an interlocutory injunction to prevent Sears Canada Inc. [Sears] from using its “Descriptive Statement”, or slogan, “THERE IS NO REASON TO BUY A MATTRESS ANYWHERE ELSE”, which Sleep Country alleges infringes its trade-marked slogan “WHY BUY A MATTRESS ANYWHERE ELSE?”, pending the final determination of Sleep Country’s action for trade-mark infringement.

[2] Sleep Country alleges that Sears’ use of Sears’ slogan is causing Sleep Country irreparable harm. This harm is a result of confusion between the two slogans, as well as depreciation of the goodwill and loss of distinctiveness of Sleep Country’s registered trade-marks.
