Monday Afternoon Begging: For Non-Lawyers Only

I want to get uncorrupted intuition on this. Comments from anyone who has been to law school are banned.

Manufacture makes a device that provides diagnostic information to people with a chronic condition. Inaccurate information could lead to death or serious injury. Manufacturer markets these in a Canadian province, already knowing that they are defective and inaccurate. Government pays the tab. Fortunately, no one is actually hurt before the manufacturer ultimately fixes the problem. The government is not interested in suing.

Should the manufacturer have to hand over its profits to the user group or should it be allowed to keep them?
