RISK MANAGEMENT City Found Not Liable in SKATING INJURY By Len Bennett BA, FCIP, CRM | Risk Analyst | Frank Cowan Company Leslie v. Mississauga (City), 2003 (ONSC) & 2006 (ONSCDC) This claim involved an action for damages arising from a collision on the ice at a municipal arena. It happened when the plaintiff, William Leslie, was either knocked down to the ice by a patroller or fell during a public skating event. The Judge noted that there was a conflict in the evidence at this trial as to how the accident occurred and whether the plaintiff assumed the risk of injury by skating with others of different skills. Facts On Sunday, January 28, 2001 at around 2:30 PM, 79-year-old William Leslie attended the Cawthra Arena with his wife. Mr. Leslie was there to skate with his son Richard and his grandchildren. Mrs. Leslie was going to take some video with her new camera. The rink had about 170 skaters ranging from small children to adults and of all different skill levels. The City had assigned four patrollers to supervise this fun skate. All four were students between 16 and 18 years old. They were selected because they were good skaters and had the right personalities to interact with the other skaters. They all received a day of training in August, 2000, which focused on the public skating rules that were posted at 22 | ONTARIO RECREATION FACILITIES ASSOCIATION the arena entrance as well as their skate patrol responsibilities. The rules at this arena required all skaters to skate in the same direction (counter clock-wise) around the rink. Skating fast, backwards or practicing skating manoeuvers were all considered against the rules. Prior to this incident, there were three patrollers on the ice and the fourth one was taking tickets. All the patrollers were each wearing a blue jacket with "Patrol" on the back. They also testified that they were wearing fluorescent vests with a yellow "x" on them. Each patroller was instructed to spread out and patrol a section of ice and to rotate their patrol zone
