It is no secret to anyone living in Nova Scotia that wind speeds during the remnants of tropical storms and hurricanes can and sometimes do exceed 115 km/h. It is also common knowledge to residents of Nova Scotia that roofing shingles can and sometimes blow off the roof during tropical cyclones…
I find as a fact that a total of eight shingles blew off the roof before the shingles were replaced by [a roofing company]. [The plaintiff]'s statement to [the roofing company] that shingles were blowing down on a daily basis was an exaggeration. It defies simple arithmetic.
