her loan, and had a criminal record

-Tran was harassed on the phoneintimidation, interference
-FDR called her employee, and spoke slander, third party intimidation if they threatened to do
something unlawful
-breach of contract, FDR company called her employers, which led them to fire her
-you have to prove that defendant must know about the contract, defendant wanted to cause
harm through the third party, break contract with plaintiff
-causing harm to plaintiff doesn’t have to be motive, they could do it for their own benefit

Normal tendering occurs when there is something big to be sold, a big business, building,
procurement, etc.
Suppose govt. Of Ontario wants to replace the computer systems in a particular region
Competitive pricing is used to get best deal
Pg.153Contract A, first contract is about how the process will be carried out, offer by the
Ontario government to hold a fair process, you don’t have to worry about whether or not you
do all this work for nothing
When you submit your tender to the Ontario government, you promise that you will not revoke
their offer until they have time to look at it
Their call for tenders is like an invitation for offers, in promise that process will be fair
Your consideration to them is that you will not revoke your tender, their consideration to you is
that the promise will be fair (first contract)
Call for tender is then saying, here is the invitation to treat, make us an offer on these criteria
When you put in your bid, you are offering to do your work at the price you send you would,
and they can either accept that or reject
Tender has a deadline of when you offer to do your work, then they pick the best one, while
rejecting all the others
Sometimes people make mistakes, price things wrongly, etc.
