Canucks’ legend Pat Quinn’s widow has gone to court, after being locked out of his life insurance in an apparent clerical error.
When the hockey hero passed in November of last year he left insurance policies worth nearly five million dollars.
But according to documents filed in BC Supreme Court last week, his wife Sandra hasn’t seen any of it.
The petition claims the Quinns consolidated the policies into a trust in 1996 to avoid paying estate tax.
It says Quinn’s wife and two daughters were named trustees, with Sandra intended as beneficiary.
Upon Quinn’s death the suit claims lawyers found key wording had been left out, locking Ms. Quinn from the policy.
None of the claims have been proven in court.
