business in Ontario by virtue of its connection with the TD
travel rewards website.
 As I noted earlier, the hotel is located in London, in the
United Kingdom. London is its only location. It has no office or
other premises in Ontario. There was no evidence that hotel
employees regularly visit Ontario or that the hotel engaged in
a marketing campaign to specifically target Ontario residents.
 In Van Breda, Ms. Van Breda was injured while on holiday in Cuba at a resort managed by Club Resorts. Her husband,
Victor Berg, was a professional squash player. Mr. Berg did not
have a typical tourism arrangement. He had an arrangement
with Club Resorts where he would provide two hours of tennis
lesson per day in exchange for room and board for him and
his spouse at the hotel. The arrangement had been made via
one Mr. Denis (another defendant), who specialized in recruiting
professionals for Club Resorts and others. In the companion
case, Charron, the plaintiff was a doctor who had drowned while
scuba diving at one of Club Resorts’ properties.
 The court found in both cases that Club Resorts was carrying on business in Ontario. In the case of Ms. Van Breda’s
husband, he entered into a special contract specifically aimed at
recruiting racquet professionals. For the purposes of the
Charron matter, the court found that Club Resorts specifically
marketed to Ontario residents. Indeed, a significant amount of
its business came from holiday travellers from Ontario. As well,
Club Resorts had the physical benefit of an office in Ontario and
its employees frequently travelled to Ontario for business purposes. In other words, Club Resorts was specifically in the business of marketing and organizing tours from wintery Ontario to
its properties in the sunny Caribbean.
 In this case, the hotel does not have an office or employees in Ontario. There is no evidence that it markets specifically
to Ontario residents. The hotel was one of many hotels that
came up on the TD Visa Travel Rewards website. The TD Visa
Travel Rewards website seems nothing more than a search
engine for those who want to use their travel points — on any
hotel that has a relationship with TD Visa Travel Rewards. The
plaintiffs provided a screenshot of their search result for hotels
in London. The search resulted in dozens of hotels.
 At best, TD Visa Travel Rewards is merely a booking
agent of the hotel. I do not think that is enough to create the
principal-agent relationship that the plaintiffs suggest. I think it
is quite obvious that a boutique hotel in a foreign jurisdiction
would make it possible to book through websites like TD Visa
Travel Rewards specifically so that it does not have to carry on
