BCSC makes reciprocal orders based on Manitoba and Ontario decisions

    VANCOUVER, Sept. 3 /CNW/ - British Columbia Securities Commission panels
have made reciprocal orders in four decisions against four individuals who
were sanctioned by the Manitoba and the Ontario Securities Commissions.
    Peter George Lee, Betty Leung, Jack George Wladyka and Sheldon Terry
Heidebrecht are subject to orders made by BCSC panels.
    BCSC commission panels may make reciprocal enforcement orders following a
streamlined process when another security regulatory authority has imposed
sanctions on a person. Commission panel reciprocal enforcement orders impose
market bans on individuals or companies, which 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 the BCSC enforcement orders:

        -  Lee is subject to market bans in B.C until July 3, 2023. Leung is
           subject to permanent market bans in B.C. The BCSC orders (BCSECCOM
           482 and 483) are based on OSC decisions rendered July 3, 2008 and
           June 25, 2008.

        -  Heidebrecht is subject to market bans in B.C until May 28, 2013.
           Wladyka is subject to permanent market bans in B.C. The BCSC
           orders (BCSECCOM 481 and 484) are based on MSC decisions rendered
           May 28, 2008.
