Bruce Welling always wrote the most stimulating heresies in Canadian Corporate Law
the constitutional significance of drunks
The Exploding Mountbattens
Since Bruce’s writings are replete with references to his surf buddies, and he can be found at dawn in the lineup at the Alley, off Currumbin Point, it’s not surprising that he has taken himself off to legal publishers in more surf-friendly climes.
His new edition of Corporate Law in Canada (3rd edition) is published by Scribblers Publishing Queensland Australia.

So what’s new. A few tidbits:
new developments in preincorporation transactions.
new developments in managers’ fiduciary obligations (owed to the corporate person, not to shareholders and others)
Canadian statute-based minority remedies are being embraced by many Commonwealth countries (including Australia and New Zealand).

He used Australian citation style throughout the book. Thus, the style familiar to Canadian readers, A.D.G.A. Systems International Ltd. v. Valcom Ltd. (1999), 168 D.L.R. 4th 351 (Ont. C.A.) becomes ADGA Systems International Ltd v Valcom Ltd (1999) 168 DLR 4th 351 (Ont CA). It dispenses with messy punctuation and presents the critical information cleanly.
Now for a bonus question: what is the significance of the woman on the cover? Corporate law anyone?
