    The recent letter sent by Northmont to owners is misleading. They state that the proposed settlement is both fair and reasonable and that it is an agreement. It is neither.
    Why would Northmont think that those who refused to pay the initial 4-7k for the RPF will pay the 14-20k they are now asking?
    Furthermore, they declare that this proposal removes the future maintenance fees associated with each VIA taken back. They continue to refuse to accept that they are responsible for those maintenance fees.
    Don't hold your breath that this recent proposal will resolve the financial disaster of Sunchaser.

    Who is responsible for the financial disaster? Ask TSWOW, or is that Time Share World of Warcraft? You have stated too many stats concerning the HOA survey and the results. Wankel = World of Warcraft.

    Not one of the ten VIA Holders with whom I have had discussions can remember this survey. I do not believe there ever was a survey. You say it was distributed in 2011 well, that's more than a decade late by any measure. Management was obligated to form an association. What you present above is nothing more than a very belated and feeble attempt to camouflage the intentional efforts of Northmont to take advantage of and marginalize the Lessees. It is also an indication of Northmont's and their successor's general mismanagement. This includes but is not limited to their failure to operate the Property in the manner of 'Vacation Resort'. It can't be interpreted any other way.

    Your opinion that a litigation group, which is clearly adversarial, is equivalent to an association of Lessees who would have the opportunity for constructive input through regular and direct face-to-face discussions with Management about the past, present and future of the Property is ridiculous.

    You are right let's not pay them a dime. How many have contacted service Alberta and Service BC. Every one should and I do not have to tell you how to write your email. Do mention that this is not a strata property. Tell them the whole story. I read on face book there is very good news from Service Alberta but please email both better than phone calls. Print off the email and keep a file. You will be pleased and please do not pay anything.

    That can't be said too loudly or too frequently. Do No Pay Anything.

    GOOD MORNING....PLEASE READ THIS.....ITS VERY IMPORTANT.

    Your inquiry into the rules governing Time Shares was forward to my attention. The Time Share and Points Based Contracts and Businesses Regulations has regulated Time Share sales that have occurred in Alberta since 2009. Prior to the previous Time Share Contracts regulation established a very limited set of minimum disclosure standards for Time Share sales occurring in Alberta.
    With both regulation, only the initial sales is regulated. The operation of the Time Share after the sale is governed by the terms of the Time Share Contract. If the Time Share operator breaches the terms of the contract, then you may have a civil case. You would need to discuss your case with legal council and determine if the issues you have identified would be a breach of the contractual rights and obligations under your contract and what options may be available to you to pursue redress or resolution. If you do not have legal counsel, the Law Society of Alberta offer a lawyer referral service that includes a free consultation.

    Do you believe that your original agreement has been breached after reading this I do. Because of freedom to choose Northmont is breaching items 9and10 used for figuring out next years maintenance fees. Also the cancellation is being breached and what about audited statements and the condo association. Do you feel it is our responsibility to replace the resort and the leaking grey pipes who's responsibility was that and the Justice System in BC says it was mansged properly sure is was. To me there seams to be a cover up here and they call it justice no way
