The following excerpt is from Holman v Leung, 2021 BCSC 1168 (CanLII):
The standard of proof in relation to future events is simple probability, not the balance of probabilities, with hypothetical events to be given weight according to their relative likelihood. Since the course of future events is unknown, allowance must be made for the contingency that the assumptions on which the award is based may prove to be wrong: Reilly v. Lynn, 2003 BCCA 49 at para. 101.
