The Owners, Strata Plan VR456 (Re)
Confusion and Uncertainty
 Since April 2020, a supermajority of the owners has agreed to move towards
the winding-up and sale of Spruce West, instead of continuing the paralysis about
what to do about its problems.
 The Moks do not agree that they have obstructed repairs on the building in
the past or that the owners cannot work together to bring the building into repair.
In his affidavit #3, Dr. Mok deposed that:
I have reviewed the First Affidavit of Tracey Anne MacLennan made
January 7, 2022, the First Affidavit of Suzanne Foster made January 7, 2022,
the First Affidavit of Petislav Tovbis made January 5, 2022, the First Affidavit
of Dan Jacob Sonnenschein made January 6, 2022 and the First Affidavit of
Agnes Mui made January 5, 2022. Those affidavits make many allegations
against Ms. Mok and me that are not true. Unfortunately, I am not in a
position to make a full response to those allegations due to the very limited
time I have had with those affidavits and the very limited time available to
make this affidavit before the court materials must be filed with the Court.
However, I will quickly respond to the allegation in those affidavits that
Ms. Mok and I have tried to obstruct repairs in respect of the Building and that
the Owners are unable to work together to make repairs. That allegation is
not true. Ms. Mok and I have supported needed repairs to the Building, and
the Owners have repeatedly demonstrated their ability to cooperate to make
repairs to the Building. Now shown to me and attached as Exhibit “B” are
copies of some productive correspondence between me, Ms. Mok and our
fellow Owners concerning repair issues. These are just some examples of
many I could provide to the Court if I had the time to do so.
Also, in the First Affidavit of Petislav Tovbis made January 5, 2022 at
paragraph 9, Mr. Tovbis suggests that Ms. Mok and I opposed the raising of a
special levy for a city work order in respect of the Building. This is incorrect.
Ms. Mok and I were in support of raising funds for repair work, but we had
concerns about the amount to be raised because we had been given
conflicting information by Barry Kinakin, an engineer at Read Jones
Christofferson Ltd. We paid our portion of this special levy, and all other
levies, in full and on time.
While the above-noted affidavits say some hurtful things about me
and Ms. Mok, I bear no ill-will against my fellow Owners. I can see no reason
why the Owners cannot work together with the assistance of an administrator
or otherwise to make needed repairs to the Building or obtain fair value for
our mutual asset instead of leaving several hundred thousand dollars (or
more) on the table and making it impossible to buy comparable homes in the
