In Todd v. Pegado, 2014 ONSC 2783, the comments of the court, at para. 60, are applicable to the instant case: The courts have also recognized that the test for causation is not to be applied too rigidly, nor does causation need to be established with scientific precision.

It does not alter the amount of proof required.
