Top 5 Civil Appeals and the Top 5 Hikes in Canada

Dated: October 19, 2016

There's been a lot of contention lately – Who threw the beer can? Does anyone need/want another “debate”? But one reliable certainty is that there is never a shortage of interesting decisions coming down from the Court of Appeal.

This month's top 5 features a Lerners win in a case that brings significant clarity to the law of police liability, as well as decisions dealing with the availability of an American legal doctrine in the context of the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act, recognition of a duty of care owed by the City of Toronto to tenants in a rent-reduction class action, the availability of the Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund to persons living in Ontario illegally, and tolling of the limitation period for collecting Highway 407 tolls.

This month's author, Jasmine Akbarali, also takes you on a guided tour of her top 5 picks for great places to go hiking in Canada. So, after you've read our Netletter, take a hike.
