At all material times prior to November 1, 2009, the standard operating procedure set by Money Mart Co., and employed by the B.C.

Each of the standard form loan agreements set by Money Mart Co. and used by the B.C. Franchisees in advancing payday loans prior to November 1,2009, sets out a formula for calculating the amount of standard First Party Cheque Cashing Fee set by Money Mart Co., to be included in the amount of the post-dated first party cheque the borrower must provide in order to obtain the payday loan, which formula sets the First Party Cheque Cashing Fee as the sum of: (a) an amount equal to a percentage of the principal amount of the payday loan, which percentage has ranged from 2.90% to 7.99% in the standard form loan agreements set by Money Mart Co. and used by the B.C.
