Alberta Securities Commission - Trial Date Set for Orest Rusnak

    CALGARY, April 12 /CNW/ - A trial date has been set for November 16, 2007
in Edmonton Provincial Court to address allegations that Orest Rusnak breached
an Alberta Securities Commission (ASC) order. In 2000, the ASC ordered Rusnak
to cease trading in securities, resign as director or officer of any issuer
and not become or act as an officer or director of an issuer for 20 years. It
is alleged that Rusnak breached this order by acting as a director or officer
of twenty different Alberta corporations, including Academy Financial Inc. and
Legal Structures Inc. An earlier press release mistakenly stated that Rusnak
was only prohibited from becoming or acting as a director or officer of a
public company. The term issuer includes both public and private companies.
The ASC apologizes for any confusion caused by the use of the term "public
    A copy of the order is posted on the ASC website at

province's securities laws. It is entrusted to foster a fair and efficient
capital market in Alberta and to protect investors. As a member of the
Canadian Securities Administrators, the ASC works to improve, coordinate and
harmonize the regulation of Canada's capital markets.
