Groscki v. The Queen, 2017 TCC 249 (Informal Procedure)

director without liquidator authorization was not legal representative

Bocock J found that a director was not a “legal representative” of a Macao-incorporated corporation that disposed of all of its inventory (being substantially all of its assets) without CRA providing a s. 159(2) clearance certificate given that the director did not do a lot more than directors normally do and, in particular did not act as a liquidator given that there was no liquidation process authorized by the corporation nor any authority granted to him to act as a liquidator, de facto or otherwise.
