S-31.1 - Business Corporations Act

Full text
223. If a squeeze-out transaction is authorized or approved by the shareholders of a corporation in accordance with its articles or this Act, the corporation, if it is not a reporting issuer, may not carry out the transaction without also being authorized to do so by ordinary resolution of the shareholders concerned, whether or not their shares carry voting rights.
However, affiliates of the corporation and shareholders who, following the squeeze-out transaction, retain shares to which are attached equal or greater rights than the shares of the class affected by the squeeze-out transaction or who would be entitled to consideration of greater value or to superior rights than those available to the other squeezed-out shareholders do not have the right to vote on the resolution.
