27 Manual, are you talking about this document?

28 A Yes.

29 Q And as you can see this is the sixth edition for

30 2006. This would be the applicable edition for

31 the time period of February 2007?

32 A Yes, it would be.

33 Q And this is a manual that’s developed from the

34 Real Estate Council of British Columbia?

35 A Yes, it is.

36 Q And that’s the governing body that governs your

34 contract; it says before you act for them.

35

36 Obtaining such informed consent before

37 acting is also necessary if a licensee
