Canada: passenger claim against government over implementation of safety management systems dismissed

Following the crash of a King Air 100 in which he was injured as a passenger, James Ratt brought a claim against a number of parties including the Candadian Minister of Transport and the Government on the grounds that their implementation of the safety management systems within the regime created by the Canadian Aviation Regulations created a lax regulatory environment that contributed to the circumstances of the crash. However, the court concluded that neither party owed the passenger a duty of care.Case: Ratt v 101004597 Saskatchewan Ltd, 2012 SKQB 532
