Passengers - Athens Convention – Limitation Period – Suspension/Interruption

Gaudet c. Navigation Madeleine inc., 2014 QCCS 4106 (CanLII)

The holding in this case that Art. 2904 of the Quebec Civil Code could apply to extend the limitation period is questionable. Cases to the contrary include: MacKay v. Russell, 2007 NBCA 55; Frugoli v. Services aeriens des Cantons de l’Est inc., 2009 QCCA 1246; and Malcolm v. Shubenacadie Tidal Bore Rafting Park Limited, 2014 NSSC 217.
