Mrs. Kahn arranged a trip to Europe for herself and her two children. Her husband couldn’t go. She spent hours with the travel agent, Mr. Tobin, deciding on the vacation package. She asked him and wrote a note asking again what documents, shots, etc., would be needed for the trip. Tobin said and wrote that all they would need would be their passports. Tobin forgot to tell her that a new regulation required a note from the father allowing the children to leave Canada, although he had received a memo in red warning him to alert travellers of the new regulation. When Mrs. Kahn and the children reached Toronto to embark on a plane for London, they were stopped because she did not have the required note from Mr. Kahn. They lost their reservations for both the plane and the tour with no refund. On these facts, which of the following is true?
There could be a civil action against Mr. Tobin and against his employer, although the employer did no wrong.
