Tort Law, Fifth Edition provides a thorough coverage of Canadian tort law, with both historical and philosophical context, and contemporary developments in case law and legislation. The fifth edition of this highly-regarded and frequently-cited text includes discussion of such topics as the continuing effect of the refined duty of care formula on Canadian negligence law, particularly with respect to liability of public authorities and pure economic loss recovery; expansion of freedom of expression as regards to public interest; defamation on the internet; new developments in nuisance and strict liability; and the new tort of protection of privacy, 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.
