He was charged with murdering her but was found not criminally responsible because of a mental disorder. He applied to have the insi:'ance proceeds paid to him.

2. Teleflex Inc. v. I.M.P. Group Ltd., (1996), 149 N.S.R. (2d) 355 (NS CA); 1996 CanLII 5603
Teleflex Inc., an American company manufacturing aircraft components, knew that I.M.P. Group Ltd. was negotiating with the Brazilian government to carry out a program for the turbinization of itsTracker aircraft fleet. Teleflex offered to supply necessary parts, to which proposal I.M.P. responded with a purchase order for 13 quadrant assembly sets at $27500 each. The shipping schedule was to commence in March 1990. Included was a provision whereby I.M.P could order a suspension of the work with a reasonable price adjustment, and a further provision whereby I.M.P. could terminate the order with payment to Teleflex for both completed and uncompleted work, according to a formula that factored in lost profits. Thereafter, Teieflex commenced manufacturing the quadrant assembly units.
In September 1989, Teleflex received the first of a series of notices from I.M.R requesting PostPonernerit of delivery of the units. Teleflex acknowledged receipt of these stop-work letters, advising that n the event of termination its termination liability schedule "attached to our original proposal will apply." I.M.P continued to experience difficulties in closing the deal with the Brazilian government and finally, in 1994, indicated it would not be requiring fulfillment of the purchase order.
Teleflex treated this as a termination notice arid advised I.M.P that it would submit' termination claim based on work performed to date. The claim amounted to US$229576 for materials, overhead, and profit. I.M.P. countered that no monies were payable because the contract had been frustrated by the Brazilian government, and further, assembly units were ever delivered by Teleflex. no quadrant assembly units were ever delivered by Teleflex.

Based on these facts, was the contract frustrated? Is any money payable to Teleflex? What factors affect your conclusion?

He had worked in a credit union for a number of years and had managed his father's berry farm. To take advantage of a business opportunity, he arranged with the Royal Bank to borrow $87000. During the negotiations, it became clear that he could get a more favourable rate of interest if his father guaranteed the loan. In fact, the son had done a considerable amount of banking on behalf of his father, who was also a customer of the same bank. The elder Gill could not read, write, or speak English and relied on his son in all his busi-ness dealings.The documents were prepared, and the son brought his father to the bank   F to sign. At no time did he explain to his father that he was signing a personal guarantee, and the evidence is clear that the father had no idea what he was signing other than that it was a document associated with a loan transaction. Gill, Sr., had implicit faith in his son's handling of his business affairs. Gill, Jr., on the other hand, was so excited about the deal that he apparently never explained the nature of the documents to his father- It is clear in this situation that at no time was there any misrepresentation to the father of the son on the part of the bank. When the son defaulted on the loan, the bank turned 5° the father for payment. Should Gill, Sr., be held responsible for this debt? What precautions should the bank " taken?

4. Chopra v. Eaton (T.) Co. (1999), 240 A.R. 201 (Q.B.); 1999 ABQB 201 (CanLII) Chopra went to Eaton's department store seeking a refund. An argument ensued. Frauenfeld (from security) told Chopra that he would have to leave; Frauenfeld took Chopra's elbow and started to escort him out of the store. Near the doors, Chopra pushed Frauenfeld away, presumably wishing to go through the doors unassisted. Frauenfeld reacted quickly and violently, putting Chopra into a headlock. Chopra's glasses were knocked off and his lip was cut; he was handcuffed, detained in the security office, and subjected to racial slurs. Chopra asked to leave, asked to call his wife, and asked Frauen-feld to call the police; all of these requests were refused. After Chopra had been detained for four hours or more, the police arrived and charged Chopra with assaulting Frauenfeld and causing a disturbance. All charges were later dismissed.

Identify what causes of action are available to Chopra to address the wrongs done to him. 
Based on these facts, was the contract frustrated? Is any money payable to Teleflex? What factors affect your conclusion?
