WHEREAS Robert Brown-John of the City of Rock Creek, in the Province of British Columbia, has by his petition represented
(a) that B. J. Field Service Ltd. (the "Company") was incorporated in British Columbia on June 26, 1986, under Certificate of Incorporation No. 0311145 issued pursuant to the Company Act, R.S.B.C. 1979, c. 59, in effect as at that date,
(b) that a notice was published in the British Columbia Gazette on October 5, 1989, pursuant to the Company Act, R.S.B.C. 1979, c. 59, stating that the Company would be struck off the Register of Companies and dissolved unless, within one month after the publication of the notice, cause was shown to the contrary,
(c) that the Company was struck off the Register of Companies on November 10, 1989,
(d) that a notice was published in the British Columbia Gazette on November 23, 1989 stating that the Company was struck off the Register of Companies and dissolved on November 10, 1989,
(e) that, despite the notice referred to in paragraph (d), the Company, having no knowledge of the publication of that notice, continued to carry on business as if it had not been dissolved,
(f) that it will not be possible to continue carrying on the business of the Company unless the Company is revived, and
(g) that, since the Company was a corporation to which the Company Act applied and since there is no provision in that Act for the revival of a company more than 10 years after it has been dissolved, the Company cannot be revived except by a special Act of the Legislature of British Columbia;
AND WHEREAS Robert Brown-John has by his petition requested that it be enacted as follows, and it is expedient to grant the request in the petition;
THEREFORE, HER MAJESTY, by and with the advice and consent of the Legislative Assembly of the Province of British Columbia, enacts as follows:
1 In this Act:
"Company" means B. J. Field Service Ltd. (Incorporation No. 0311145);
"Register" means the Register of Companies;
"Registrar" means the Registrar of Companies.
2 The Company is restored to the Register under the corporate name B. J. Field Service Ltd. commencing on the date that a copy of this Act, certified by the Law Clerk of the Legislative Assembly, is filed with the Registrar.
3 On its restoration, the Company is deemed to have continued in existence as if it had never been struck off the Register.
4 Nothing in sections 2 and 3 prejudices the rights of any person that were acquired before the date on which the Company is restored to the Register.
