WHEREAS Lance Conway, of the City of Aldergrove, in the Province of British Columbia, has by his petition represented
(a) that the Patricia Community Club (the "Society") was incorporated in British Columbia on October 7, 1922 under Certificate of Incorporation No. S -- 0001100 issued under the Societies Act, S.B.C. 1920, c. 83, in effect as at that date,
(b) that a notice was published in the British Columbia Gazette on October 6, 1988 under the Society Act, R.S.B.C. 1979, c. 390, stating that the Society would be struck off the Register of Companies and dissolved unless, within one month after publication of the notice, cause was shown to the contrary,
(c) that the Society was struck off the Register of Companies on November 10, 1988,
(d) that a notice was published in the British Columbia Gazette on November 24, 1988 stating that the Society was struck off the Register of Companies and dissolved on November 10, 1988,
(e) that, despite the notice referred to in paragraph (d), the Society, having no knowledge of the publication of that notice, continued to carry on the affairs of the Society as if it had not been dissolved,
(f) that it will not be possible to continue carrying on the affairs of the Society unless the Society is revived, and
(g) that, despite the repeal of the Company Act, R.S.B.C. 1996, c. 62, Part 9 of that Act continues to apply to the Society under section 71 of the Society Act, R.S.B.C. 1996, c. 433, and since there is no provision in that Part for the revival of a society more than 10 years after it has been dissolved, the Society cannot be revived except by a special Act of the Legislature of British Columbia;
AND WHEREAS Lance Conway 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:
"Register" means the Register of Companies;
"Registrar" means the Registrar of Companies;
"Society" means the Patricia Community Club (Incorporation No. S -- 0001100).
2 The Society is restored to the Register, under the corporate name of Patricia Community Club, 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 Society 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 Society is restored to the Register.
5 This Act comes into force on the date of Royal Assent.
