Evan Cooke challenged three rent control bylaws adopted by the City of Vancouver that would have made his client’s residential apartment business unprofitable and the buildings unsaleable . The bylaws were struck down by the B.C. Supreme Court as being ultra vires (beyond the legal authority of) the City of Vancouver. Further, the City of Vancouver was ordered to destroy any confidential business records that it had collected from landlords pursuant to the unlawful bylaws, and was ordered to pay legal costs to Mr. Cooke’s client.
