What is the effect of parole evidence to identify a debt referred to?

Saskatchewan, Canada


The following excerpt is from Wagner v. Heidt, 1931 CanLII 249 (SK CA):

The learned trial Judge admitted parole evidence to show that the “lessee’s debt” referred to was this note assumed by the plaintiff, and held that she was liable for it under her contract of lease. It is now objected that this parole evidence to identify the debt referred to was not admissible, but in my opinion it was; and, so far as the evidence goes, there was no other debt in existence at the time that might have been in the minds of the parties: Macdonald v. Longbottom (1860) 1 El. & Bl. 977, 29 L.J.Q.B. 256.
