What is the test for future losses?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Star v. Ellis, 2007 BCSC 512 (CanLII):

I accept, as stated above, that the test for future losses depends upon their relative likelihood should those opportunities be a real and substantial possibility rather than simply speculation: See Athey v. Leonati, 1996 CanLII 183 (SCC), [1996] 3 S.C.R. 458, 140 D.L.R. (4th) 235.
