When a tree falls: The Supreme Court of Canada confirms the large and liberal interpretation that must be given to Quebec’s Automobile Insurance Act
Jonathan Lacoste-Jobin, Alexis Devroede-Languirand - July 2012
In a unanimous decision rendered on June 22nd, the Supreme Court of Canada confirms the principles previously established by the Court of Appeal: Quebec’s Automobile Insurance Act ("Act") must be given a large and liberal interpretation. In this case, the Court confirms that the mere use of a vehicle as a means of transportation will be sufficient for the Act to apply even if the vehicle is not the cause of the accident.
