On October 22, 2010, at the request of the AMF, the Bureau extended until November 30, 2010 the freeze order initially issued on June 29, 2010 in the matter of Raphaël Huppé, Vida Pharma Internation Corporation and Effective Control Corporation. This freeze order extension pertains to the following individual and companies: Raphaël Huppé, Vida Pharma Internation Corporation (also operating under 6972012 Canada Inc., Vida Pharma International and WESPP International), and Contrôle Transport Effectif (also operating under ECC Networks and ECC Réseautique).

Given that the attorney for the respondents (except Effective Control Corporation, which has no representation) has requested that the hearing scheduled for October 19 be postponed to adequately prepare to challenge the freeze order extension request, the Bureau has rescheduled the hearing so that the respondents may be heard.

The hearing will take place on Wednesday, November 10, 2010 at 9:30 a.m. in the Paul-Fortugno room located at 500 René-Lévesque Boulevard West, Suite 16.40, Montréal, Québec.

The Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) is the regulatory and oversight body for Québec’s financial sector.
