Imperial Metals Corporation

On November 3, 2006, Imperial Metals Corporation and its subsidiary CAT-Gold Corporation applied to the Commission under section 161(1) of the Securities Act, RSBC 1996, c.418 for an order to cease trade the shareholder rights plan of bcMetals Corporation so that Imperial could freely take up bcMetals shares under its bid without triggering the rights plan. On November 6, 2006, bcMetals applied to the Commission under section 114 of the Act for an order that Imperial comply with the Act and give holders of bcMetals shares taken up by Imperial the right to withdraw them from the bid. The BC Securities Commission ruled that Imperial did not have standing to apply for a cease trade order and bcMetals' application was refused.

Fasken was counsel to Imperial Metals Corporation and CAT-Gold Corporation, with a team led by Mark Andrews, QC, and included Andrew Nathanson and Tracey Cohen, QC.
