Thorough coverage of Canadian tort law, with both historical and philosophical context, and contemporary developments in case law and legislation. The fourth edition of this highly-regarded and frequently-cited text includes discussion of the refined duty of care formula, negligence, new approaches to proving causation, vicarious liability and the issue of non-delegable duties, the liability of public authorities, compensation for wrongful life and birth, misfeasance in a public office, social host liability, the business torts and defamation, among others. In addition to the most recent Canadian judgments in all areas of tort law, relevant references to tort law judgments in other common law jurisdictions are also included.
