Ewachniuk Estate v. Ewachniuk, 2011 BCSC 395

Enforcement of Promissory Note: We were successful at trial advancing a claim by an Administrator of an Estate to enforce a demand delayed promissory note in the amount of $750,000. The promissory note was given in 1980 by a son to his parents and secured the purchase price of shares in the family business in 1980. The claim was not brought until 2008 after both parents had died. The son claimed that the debt had been forgiven by his late mother and was, in any event, barred by the Limitation Act. The trial court rejected both defences.
