As per Mr. Sillito's verbal, and written offer in his October 2006 meeting notes (above) I prepared an invoice for all the time Mom, Dad, my sister and I HAD to spend on EnCana's ever pressing business interests.
Using my 2006 farm notes I was able to provide an accurate account of our time and expenses, forced upon us by this bully of a 'tenant'.
I used Sillito's/Encana's $50./hour offer to calculate my time and my sister's. For Mom and Dad's calculations I figured their time was worth a tad more so I based their value on how much Dad had in the past charged a GOOD neighbour for his time and services @ $100./hour. I didn't think that figure was unfair or too far out of line especially when compared to high hourly rates charged by the petroleum industry.
Bottom line, from Feb 17th to Dec 31st, 2006, Encana owed us $101,819.89.
