Century Services Inc. v. Canada (Attorney General)
Acted for Century Services Inc. before the Supreme Court of Canada, where for the first time, the Court has considered the CCAA, determining the CCAA and not the Excise Tax Act provides the rule with respect to the priority of unremitted GST.
Thursday, 16 December 2010
Mary Buttery recently won an important case for Century Services Inc. at the Supreme Court of Canada. Ms. Buttery is the head of the Vancouver office's Business Solutions & Restructuring Group.
The Court also confirmed the broad discretion afforded to a CCAA supervising judge in the context of a restructuring. Importantly, the Court also over-ruled the leading Ontario Court of Appeal decision in Ottawa Senators Hockey Club Corp.
