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
PINNACLE CAR SALES AND LEASING LTD.
A hearing was called pursuant to sections 6 and 7 of the Salesperson Licensing Regulation (the “Regulation”) to review the conduct of Pinnacle Car Sales and Leasing Ltd. (“Pinnacle”). The areas of concern were:
Operating with unlicensed salespeople;
Allowing Peter Fryer, who was denied a salesperson licence by the Registrar at a hearing on December 4, 2013, to work as a vehicle salesperson at the dealership; and
Not providing a valid municipal business licence for the current operating address of 16065 Fraser Highway, Surrey, B.C.
Pinnacle advised the Registrar that they obtained legal counsel and requested an adjournment to allow time to prepare.
Given that adequate notice of the Hearing was not given, the Registrar granted the adjournment placing the following conditions on Pinnacle’s licence:
Pinnacle is to provide to the VSA by January 20, 2015, a valid City of Surrey Business Licence or assurance from the City of Surrey on their letterhead that a valid Business Licence will be forthcoming. Legal Counsel for Pinnacle have leave to make further submissions on this condition;
Pinnacle is to provide to the VSA by December 4, 2014, all payroll records for Baldip Sachdeva (Romy); and
Pinnacle is to provide to the VSA by November 28, 2014, a dealership policy manual detailing the processes in place to ensure that all vehicle salespeople at the dealership are properly licensed.
