If a minor child living with a custodial parent gets into a wreck and the custodial parent canceled the minor from the policy can the non custodial parent be liable?

No. The parent with custodial rights is totally liable especially since the child was living with you while it happened.AnswerThat depends on several factors such as why the coverage was canceled, when it was canceled, who allowed the child to drive the car, whether the issue is addressed in the separation agreement, etc. If the custodial parent canceled insurance coverage for a reason and the non-custodial parent allowed the child to drive in spite of the cancellation, the non-custodial parent may be liable. If the child wrecked a car and as a result the custodial parent canceled the insurance coverage so they could no longer drive, the non-custodial parent would be liable if they continue to allow the child to operate a vehicle.
