Launch of new Textbook “Sports and Recreation Liability Law in Canada”
We are pleased to announce the publication of our new textbook “Sports and Recreation Liability Law in Canada” (by Lorne Folick, Mike Libby, and Paul Dawson, with Catherine Whitehead as contributing editor).
“This book addresses all aspects of sport, recreation, and event liability in Canada. It covers in depth the bases for potential liability of those involved in the sports and recreation field (including, but not limited to, amateur teams, participants, sports leagues, non-profit organizations, facility owner/operators, for-profit teams and organizations, owner/operators of attractions, employers, risk managers, and event planners/sponsors and hosts). The book also addresses numerous issues that impact directly upon such liability issues. These include issues of insurance coverage for both named and “additional” insureds, defences, waivers, contributory negligence, and voluntary assumption of risk.” (Thomson Reuters)
