Wepruk v. Great Canadian Van Lines Ltd

In Carriage of Goods by Road/Rail on (Updated )

The main issues in this action were whether the defendant carrier could rely on the special conditions of carriage on the reverse of its bill of lading. The Court held that the conditions on the bill of lading did not apply as the bill of lading was delivered after the contract had been breached. The Court awarded general damages, aggravated damages for mental distress and punitive damages.
