UNIT 2 LEARNING ACTIVITY `Considering the information provided by Noah, he might be eligible to receive the $2,000 reward offered by Mary in exchange for any information that leads to the recovery of her lamb. To explain why, let me give you some examples: It was the first time Noah had seen the lamb behind some barrels behind the village store that he discovered it. There was a boy named Amir who promised Mary $50.00 to deliver the message if she delivered it. By doing this, he shows that he tried to let Mary know where the lamb was by letting her know where he tried to find it. While Noah could not speak directly to Mary, he took reasonable measures to ensure that as best as he could, Amir would relay the message to her on behalf of Noah. However, Mary found her lamb outside her house after Noah inquired and alerted her. However, I believe that Noah is certainly deserving of the $2,000 award that Mary is offering, given the information she has provided about his activities. As a result of his discovery and his reasonable efforts to reach out to Mary, her return was primarily a result of her discovery. Are the parties involved in this case required to perform their contractual duties in good faith? If so, what does good faith in contracts mean? In this case, one of the most important concepts that plays a crucial role is the concept of good faith, even though it is not within the typical context of a formal contract. Even if not bound by contracts, good faith refers to acting honestly, fairly, and transparently in one's dealings and interactions with others. The moral and ethical responsibilities of Mary, Noah, Jill, and Amir are based on good faith. They had implicit social and ethical obligations to help Mary find her lost lamb, even 2
UNIT 2 LEARNING ACTIVITY without a formal contract. Noah acted in good faith, scribbling the note and intending to help Mary. Because of his shyness or forgetfulness, Amir might be seen as not upholding his responsibility by not delivering the message to Mary as he intended. She tried sincerely to inform Mary about the lamb, even though her efforts were not ultimately successful due to Mary's absence. Owners of lost animals have a reasonable expectation that their community will aid them in finding theirs. For the sake of discussion, say Amir sent Mary a text message via his mobile but Mary, who was very depressed, did not open it until she found the lamb herself. Does she have to pay Noah? Do courts in Canada recognize texts message as a binding contract? Can you think of any relevant Canadian case law? You may want to have a quick look at the Electronic Commerce Act, 2000 S.0. 2000. According to the scenario, Amir fulfilled his intention to inform Mary about the lamb's location when he sent her a text message. However, it is important to note that Mary did not read the message until after she had found the lamb herself, which introduces an element of timing and coincidence to the situation. According to Canadian law, an electronic communication, including a text message, can constitute a binding contract under the Electronic Commerce Act, 2000 Section 66 of the Statutes of Canada 2000. As a result of the Act, a legal framework has been created to govern electronic transactions and contracts. This established that contracts cannot be denied enforceability solely based on their electronic format. 3
