In the matter of THE MOTOR DEALER ACT R.S.B.C. 1996 C.316 and THE SALESPERSON LICENSING REGULATION B.C. Reg. 241/2004
A hearing was called to review the application of Peter Fryer for licensing as a salesperson.
The VSA staff raised the following three concerns:
Mr. Fryer’s past criminal convictions;
Mr. Fryer provided false or incomplete declarations on his application materials; and
Mr. Fryer worked as a salesperson in B.C. and Alberta while unlicensed.
Mr. Fryer is denied a salesperson licence due to: (a) Mr. Fryer’s extensive criminal history spanning 38 years, the most recent for break and enter in 2012; (b) Mr. Fryer’s admission of a conviction for committing several violent crimes, one involving a weapon; (c) Mr. Fryer’s clear continuing disregard to abide by court and probation orders, the last being in 2012; (d) Mr. Fryer knowingly acted as an unlicensed salesperson; (e) Mr. Fryer knowingly provided false answers on his application form; and (f) There is no indication that Mr. Fryer is attempting to rehabilitate himself.
The Registrar found it necessary to refuse to accept any future applications from Mr. Fryer to be licensed as a salesperson or registered as a motor dealer, or where Mr. Fryer has any involvement in a motor dealer.
