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

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?

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.
35 Q And, now, just so I’m clear as well, you are hired
