(News Release) VICTORIA – An Order has been made today in the Supreme Court of British Columbia placing Bear Mountain Master Partnership under creditor protection pursuant to the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act resulting in creditors and other third parties being stayed from terminating agreements or otherwise taking any steps against Bear Mountain.

Prowis Inc. has been appointed the Chief Restructuring Officer for Bear Mountain, and PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc has been appointed the Monitor.

It has received international acclaim for Southern Vancouver Island as a world-class golf destination. Both customers and suppliers can be assured that, while restructuring measures are implemented, it will be business as usual at Bear Mountain Resort with no interruption to the large number of events that are planned to take place, including all conference reservations, golf tournaments and the esteemed TELUS World Skins Game to be held June 21 and 22, 201
