Canadian Press quotes Calgary lawyer David Kitchen in an article on how COVID has impacted sports insurance within the Canadian sport system.
Insurance is one tool for liability protection and risk mitigation another, according to David Kitchen, who is legal counsel for the Canadian Olympic Committee's law firm Fasken.
"The liability portion is much bigger than just the insurance aspect," Kitchen said. "Regardless of whether you have insurance or not, the liability landscape has now changed.
"What we've been saying to members of the COC is, what you need to do as a sports organization is to get a reasonable risk-management system in place. Part of that will necessarily include insurance or determining what your insurance covers."
