BCSC makes reciprocal orders against 10 individuals



    VANCOUVER, Feb. 3 /CNW/ - British Columbia Securities Commission panels
have made reciprocal enforcement orders against 10 individuals sanctioned by
securities commissions in Alberta, Ontario and New Brunswick.
    They are Jose Castaneda, David Simpson, Jerome Stanislaus Xavier, Lorne
Drever, Harry Niles, Liedong (Leon) Gu, Blair MacDougall, William M.
Mallinson, Paul Norman Oliver, and Robert Waxman.
    The BCSC makes reciprocal enforcement orders following a streamlined
process when another commission has imposed sanctions on a person or the
person has agreed with another commission to be sanctioned. BCSC orders can
include one or more of the following sanctions:
    
    -   cease trading in and purchasing securities and exchange contracts;
    -   a prohibition from becoming or acting as a director or officer of any
        issuer, registrant or investment fund manager;
    -   a prohibition from becoming or acting as a registrant, investment
        fund manager or promoter;
    -   a prohibition from acting as a manager or consultant in the
        securities market; and
    -   a prohibition from engaging in investor relations activities

    Under BCSC orders:

    -   Castaneda, Simpson, Drever and Niles are subject to permanent trading
        and various market bans in B.C. The BCSC orders are based on
        sanctions made by Ontario and New Brunswick securities commissions.
