What statutory declaration warrants the absolute truth of the statement and changes the warranty in the agreement of purchase and sale?

Ontario, Canada


The following excerpt is from Doucette v. Marin, 2008 CanLII 66625 (ON SC):

In the case before me, the statutory declaration which warrants the absolute truth of the statement and changes the warranty in the agreement of purchase and sale which states “to the best of her knowledge and belief” was given without fresh consideration and was executed after the agreement of purchase and sale. Considering the jurisprudence under Rule 21.01, assuming that the facts as pleaded are true, and applying the decision of Gilbert v. Steel, supra, I am of the view that it is “plain and obvious” that the facts asserted disclose no reasonable cause of action against the third party.
