In This Issue

There are a wide variety of topical business and corporate matters discussed in this issue. Proper resignation as a corporate director, good governance of natural resource industries, effective government relations and a comprehensive policy of whistleblower protection are canvassed in full-length articles. Unresolved Aboriginal land claims and their effect on developers and property owners are discussed by Annie Thuan, and Sergio Marchi

weighs in on the new frontier for Canada-China relations. There are also articles dealing with practical issues such as special-use leases and the notion of unconscionability in settlements and releases, and a look at the disruption

caused by U.S. sub-prime mortgages on Canadian asset-backed commercial paper.

LAW NOTES update a number of cuttingedge issues: Prospectuses are discussed (disclosure issues and the passport system), and there are NOTES on addressing the problems of ending mandatory retirement, the complexity of “purchaser in Canada” rules and trade sanctions against Burma and others. There are also some thoughts on the dangers of eroding solicitor-client privilege and the Supreme Court ruling that shooting another member of one’s hunting party is not an indirect use of one’s motor vehicle.

In Life Bites, two tributes and some lighter material; and in the hard copy, your Letters and Comments, and a little bit about us.
