OTTAWA (CP) — A class-action lawsuit against Pfizer Canada over its anti-smoking drugChampix will proceed, an Ontario Superior Court has ruled.

On Friday, lawyers for the plaintiffs, including Toronto-based firm McPhadden Samac Tuovi LLP, announced a judge has dismissed Pfizer’s appeal.

The plaintiffs allege the drug maker failed to warn Canadians taking the drug that they could suffer psychiatric side effects such as depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts.

The allegations have not been proven in court.
