Is there any ambiguity in the terms of the Contract in relation to the term "certification"?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Westcore Services Ltd. v. Weninger Ltd., 2017 BCPC 323 (CanLII):

Weninger submits that any ambiguity in the terms of the Contract in regard to the question of “certification” ought to be interpreted in his favour. However, in Mendelson v. Work Wear Corp of Canada, (1993) O.J. No. 367 at paragraph 56, Wilson J. held that even in the face of an ambiguity, this rule of interpretation has no application where there is only one reasonable interpretation of the intention of the parties.
