The Alberta Proxy Legislation: Borrowed Variations on an Eighteenth Century Theme

  • L. Getz


The author deals with the history of modern law as it relates to proxies. He deals with the form that they can take and the avenues of approach which are open to the various participants in a company. The present statutory requirements both in Alberta and elsewhere are reviewed and the author finally deals with the modern philosophy of investors and criticizes the piecemeal approach to reform which has not adequately achieved some of the purposes which should be served by ideal proxy legislation.
