TORONTO, March 19 /CNW/ - Unique Broadband Systems, Inc. (the "Company")
(TSX Venture: UBS) announced today that Look Communications Inc. ("Look") (TSX
Venture: LOK and LOK.A), its 51 per cent controlled subsidiary, has been
granted an Order from the Ontario Superior Court of Justice compelling Bell
Canada to, amongst other things, deliver its Affidavit of Documents to Look by
no later than October 1, 2008 (the "deadline"). Despite agreeing to a Court
imposed timetable on August 13, 2007 to exchange an Affidavit of Documents
with Look by November 16, 2007, Bell Canada has failed to adhere to its
obligations before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice prompting the action
initiated by Look.
As such, Look obtained an Order from the Honourable Justice Spence that
granted the following:
1. The Defendant, Bell Canada, deliver its sworn Affidavit of Documents
by no later than the deadline;
2. Bell Canada is to continue reporting to the Ontario Superior Court of
Justice on a monthly basis as to its progress in preparing its
Affidavit of Documents, and that Bell Canada will provide Look with a
written report in advance of this monthly attendance outlining:
a. The number of people who are reviewing the Bell Canada documents;
b. The number of documents reviewed during the month and the number
of documents remaining to review; and
3. In the event that Bell Canada fails to deliver its Affidavit of
Documents by the deadline, or if, in advance of the deadline, it is
shown that the efforts Bell Canada is making will not likely allow it
to meet the deadline, Look may seek an order to reduce the
$360,000 per month payment to Bell Canada, or seek an order for such
other relief as the Court may permit, after July 1, 2008 based on the
reports from Bell Canada to that date and any other relevant
The Company is very pleased with the decision of the Ontario Superior
Court of Justice and is hopeful that this Order will allow Look to proceed
with its Statement of Claim against Bell Canada on an expedited basis as
originally agreed to in July 2007.
