In Markham v. AIG Insurance Company of Canada (“Markham”), the Ontario Court of Appeal considered a dispute between two insurers regarding their respective duties to defend a municipality. This event will feature a Q & A hosted by Erin Durant with Shaneka Shaw Taylor, a counsel involved in the case, and Laura Day. Markham arose as a result of an accident which occurred at a hockey arena owned by the municipality but rented to Hockey Canada and one of its hockey associations. The municipality had both a commercial general liability insurance policy as well as additional insured insurance through the municipality’s rental agreement with certain hockey clubs. The case raises important issues for the defence bar including the apportionment of defence costs and each parties ability to participate in and control the defence of the case.
