731 Stephen Tidder (for Third Parties)In chief by Mr. Blanchard

11 Q Now, Mr. Tidder, did you in 2007 have a

12 conversation with Francis Garnier?

13 A Yes.

14 Q Can you —

15 A A telephone —

16 Q — tell —

17 A Telephone conversation.

30 Q And when Mr.Garnier called you, was he upset?

31 A I don’t have a great recollection of that

32 conversation, to be honest with you, but I believe

33 he wouldn’t be asking me to ask Mr. Hunter to not

34 come by anymore if — if he was not at some point

35 dissatisfied or upset.

12 Q Okay. Now, we’ve heard some evidence that the

13 Garniers met with you in relation to their request

14 that you look into the deposit and that you had

15 told them you’d contacted Prudential United Realty

16 and asked on three occasions for information

17 regarding the deposit and that they hadn’t — that

18 Prudential hadn’t been forthcoming with the

19 information; do you have any recollection of that?

20 A No. But if we talked about the deposit, I have a

21 conveyancer who works for me for like 20 years,

22 something like that would have been handled by my

23 conveyancer, to check on the deposit. But the

24 vendor’s side doesn’t typically check a deposit.

25 So if I said anything, it may have been that my

26 conveyancer may have called and I informed the

27 Garniers that we tried to contact the real estate

28 company three times, and that would be it.

343 Mindy Jong (an adverse witness)Cross-exam by Mr. Davison

34 Q Okay. And is that something that’s possible that

35 you spoke to her about; she might have told you,

36 look, I phoned and I couldn’t get a response?

37 A If we were speculating, it could be.

38 Q Okay. So it’s possible?

39 A Yes.

40 Q Okay. Particularly since you didn’t open up a

41 file at that point?

42 A Yes.
