DEFENDANT
HONDA CANADA INC.
AFFIDAVIT
AFFIDA VII OF CHRISTOPHER PERREIRA
I, CHRISTOPHER PERREIRA, of the City of Toronto, in the Province of
Ontario, MAKE OATH AND SAY THAT:
1.
I am the Supervisor of Customer Relations Marketing at Honda Canada Inc.
("Honda Canada"). I have held this position throughout the period relevant to this affidavit.
2.
As Supervisor of Customer Relations Marketing, I, along with Alvin Cheung
(Engineering Analyst, Campaign Safety & Collision, of the Engineering Development
department) was responsible for distribution of the Notices described in the Settlement
Agreement.
..,
.).
As the first step in distributing the Notices, I assembled a list ofthe names and
postal addresses of all present and former owners and lessees of settlement class vehicles.
This list was assembled using the same methodology that Honda Canada uses to deliver
notices of safety recalls to consumers, as described in the Affidavit of Kenneth Dick sworn
May 22, 2014 which was filed in support of the application for preliminary approval of the
settlement.
4.
In the result, Honda Canada generated a mailing list using multiple inputs: (i)
its database of Vehicle Identification Numbers ("VINs") sold; (ii) a database of its
customers; (iii) dealer data on customers whose vehicles they service; and (iv) further
-2enhancements effected by an outside service provider, Retention Marketing Systems Inc.
("Retention
Marketing")
using publicly available records
and proprietary address
enhancement software (the "Mailing Database").
5.
I believe that the Mailing Database contains a comprehensive list of all names
associated with each settlement class vehicle VIN and the best reasonably available address
information for all names in that database.
6.
The names and corresponding addresses associated with all settlement class
vehicle VINs from the Mailing Database was delivered to Retention Marketing.
7.
I am advised by Alvin Cheung and John Bishop at Retention Marketing and
verily believe, that 187,636 envelopes containing the Notice and Claim form described in the
Settlement Agreement (the "Notice Materials") and addressed to all known settlement class
members from the Mailing Database were provided to Canada Post for mailing between July
7, 2014 and July 30, 2014.
8.
As evidenced by the three invoices attached as Exhibit "A", the 187,636
envelopes were delivered to Canada Post for delivery by Canada Post to the addresses
indicated.
9.
As of September 17, 2014, 15,537 ofthese envelopes were returned to Honda
Canada as undeliverable.
10.
Although not required under the Settlement Agreement, Honda Canada had
the Notice Materials translated into the French language. Copies of the Notice Materials in
French were delivered to addresses of settlement class members located in the province of
Quebec or if a customer has expressed that their preferred language of communication is
French.
-3-
11.
I make this affidavit to at1est to Honda Canada's compliance with its obligations
under the Settlement Agreement, and in support of an application for final approval of the
·settlement.
SWORN BEFORE ME at the City
of Markham, in the Province of
Ontario, this I() day of
October, 2014.
