Default 09 Acura TL - Broken ECU!? Repair costs!?

Hey, just yesterday I purchased an 09 TL. Delivery was at 6:30 and I was nearly home at 7:30. However, before I went home, I decided to stop by my local church for a minute. Then for a few circumstances, I had to wait in the car for a few minutes. So while waiting, I thought it would be time to setup my Bluetooth hands free link. During this, the car was on, but the ignition wasn't; in the ON (II) position. So I waited for a few minutes, approximately 7-10. Then I had done what I had needed and was time for us to leave.

So I try turning on the car, no reaction from the engine. It starts flashing in the dash when I try running the engine. Finally, I tried all sorts of things, and no good luck.

Then, someone passing by offered a boost and I said sure. So he got everything set up and began the process. But as much as he tried no luck.

HOWEVER, speaking to my friend later, he asked me a few questions. TURNS OUT, booster cables weren't connected properly!! And this messed up the ECU. I had to park the car at the church, by pushing it into a parking spot, and the dealer is coming to tow it to his shop today.

Is it really the ECU, how much is it gonna cost!?! Btw, I live in Toronto, Ontario if this helps.
