Counsel:

 

J. Gardner Hodder, for the appellants.
Michael Royce, for the respondents.
The judgment of the Court was delivered by

 

¶ 1 CARTHY J.A. (endorsement):— We have reviewed the submissions of trial counsel for the plaintiffs and the reasons of the trial judge are a direct response thereto, centering upon the credibility issue as to the production of estoppel certificates. We are not prepared to consider the appeal on a revised argument because to do so in this case is to retry the action.

 

¶ 2 The appeal is dismissed with costs.
