Canadian Dyers Association Ltd. v Burton (1920), 47 OLR 259 (HL)

A mere statement of price does not constitute an offer to sell; it is no more than an invitation to treat. However, courts will consider the language used and context, in addition to subsequent actions of both parties when determining whether an offer was made.
