Saskatchewan, Canada


The following excerpt is from Allardyce v. Handley, 1961 CanLII 243 (SK QB):

With respect, I am of opinion that the views of Macdonnell, J.A. in Koos v. McVey, supra, are correct and the conclusion is irresistible that the words “any person being carried in, or upon, or entering or getting into, or alighting from such motor vehicle” mean any person other than the owner or driver.
