|2||Westco Insurance Company Act, 1966 repealed|
|3||Effect of repeal|
WHEREAS John Gill of the City of Vancouver, in the Province of British Columbia, has by his petition represented that
(a) Westco Insurance Company (the "Company") was incorporated by a private Act of the Legislative Assembly, namely the Westco Insurance Company Act, 1966, S.B.C. 1966, c. 71,
(b) although the Company has been in operation since 1966 in the insurance business in British Columbia, the Company has in recent years been a dormant company,
(c) Industrial-Alliance Pacific Life Insurance Company (the "shareholder") is the sole shareholder of the Company,
(d) the Company has no assets, debts, liabilities or other obligations, the same having been distributed to or assumed by the shareholder,
(e) the shareholder of the Company wishes to dissolve the Company, and
(f) there are no legislative provisions available to the Company to allow it to dissolve voluntarily and therefore such dissolution is not possible without a special Act of the Legislature of British Columbia;

THEREFORE, HER MAJESTY, by and with the advice and consent of the Legislative Assembly of the Province of British Columbia, enacts as follows:
