Karpouzis v. Toronto (City of), 2020 ONSC 143

The plaintiff in Karpouzis v. Toronto (City) was injured while skateboarding in a City park at night; he suffered a serious brain injury and has not returned to work in the eight years since the accident. The City brought a summary judgment motion, arguing that it was not liable for the plaintiff’s injuries under the “recreational trails” provisions of the OLA. Justice Perell concluded that the City did not breach the standard and dismissed the action.
