In Robertson v. Resort Municipality of Whistler, the Plaintiff, representing herself, agreed to settle her matter in a conversation with defence counsel on the telephone. She later changed her mind, arguing that there was no settlement until she agreed in writing. The Court rejected this notion.
 Settlement agreements need not be in writing to be enforceable. This was recognized in Sekhon v. Khangura, 2009 BCSC 670.
 The plaintiff changed her mind and repudiated the settlement as a result of the reaction of her father and the involvement of her aunt, Ms. MacDonald.
 I conclude that on December 16, 2010, the plaintiff entered into a binding settlement agreement. This action is dismissed with costs awarded to the defendant upon the basis that the sum of $1,400.00 due to the plaintiff will be set-off against the defendant’s assessed costs.
