7th count: Between March 2006 and August 2007, following their differences regarding real estate matters, had a malicious and arrogant behaviour towards a party engaged in a real estate transaction, committing thus, against that person, an offence under section 13 of the Rules of Professional Ethics of the ACAIQ.
8th count: On or around July 2008, having impeded the work of the Syndic and failing to cooperate during the investigation conducted by the latter, notably by avoiding and refusing to answer the investigator’s various questions, committing thus an offence under section 117 of the Real Estate Brokerage Act.
On September 12, 2011, the Discipline Committee ordered a permanent suspension of Mr. Pierre Bédard’s licence, enforceable as of the date the penalty decision is served on the defendant if the latter is the holder of a licence issued by the OACIQ or, if not, whenever he becomes a licence holder again.
Given that Mr. Pierre Bédard does not hold any licence, his licence shall be suspended permanently whenever he becomes a licence holder again.
This notice is given in accordance with section 98.1 of the Real Estate Brokerage Act (R.S.Q., c. C-73.2) and section 33 of the Regulation respecting the issue of broker’s and agency licences.
