The order had no effect. Subsequent to the order, the unit owners damaged panels on the exterior walls of the building, tore holes in the exterior waterproof membrane of the building and installed pipes through the exterior walls of their unit. They went so far as to remove steel studs from their strata lot. The strata corporation obtained a second order from the British Columbia Supreme Court to restrain the unit owners from interfering with or impeding the repairs to the building.
Several months later, the parties agreed to a consent order for the completion of the work. The consent order had no effect either. Under the terms of the consent order, the unit owners would be allowed, at their cost, to replace the steel studs. The strata council later learned that the unit owners had removed all of the steel studs in one wall of their unit. The strata council revoked its permission for the unit owners to replace the studs and arranged for its own contractors to make the repairs. However, the unit owners would not permit the strata council's contractor into the unit to complete the work.
The strata corporation successfully applied for a third court order against the unit owners to proceed with the replacement of the steel studs.
The strata corporation then applied for an order of special costs against Mr. Edgar and Ms. Harvey. The court allowed the application for special costs. It called the conduct of the unit owners reprehensible and noted that Mr. Edgar "is the kind of neighbour for whom fences were developed."
