The Defendants are the major governing bodies of gymnastics in Canada. The claim alleges that the Defendants caused or contributed to the abuse of gymnasts by creating a culture and an environment where the abuse could occur, and failing to take appropriate steps to protect the athletes in their care and control, many of whom were children when the abuse took place.
