This episode provides an examination of tort reform in Canada, with an expert in the field. This episode examines the existing tort system, how it could be changed, who is seeking this change, and (in that vein) how different people will benefit from this. We examine common misconceptions about the law of torts, and how said misconceptions lead to calls for tort reform. We also examine how the movement for tort reform has spread into Canada from abroad.
Joining the Pro Bono Radio team to discuss tort reform in Canada is Professor Mary-Jo Maur. Professor Maur is currently a professor at Queen’s University of Law who teaches tort law, family law and dispute resolution.
