(BC-Huawei-Meng-Court)

A senior executive of Chinese tech giant Huawei is facing allegations of fraud by using a subsidiary to violate U-S trade sanctions against Iran in a case that shook world stock markets this week.

A prosecutor told a bail hearing for Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver today that the chief financial officer of Huawei Technologies is wanted in the United States.

But defence lawyer David Martin told B-C Supreme Court there are glaring deficiencies in the allegations and called one of them "preposterous."

Martin argued for Meng's release on bail, which the Crown opposed. (The Canadian Press)

Fracking operations are being shut down in northeast B-C for at least 30 days while the B-C Oil and Gas Commission investigates earthquakes that occurred last month.

It says the company immediately suspended work.

The company won't be allowed to resume fracking without the written consent of the commission. (The Canadian Press)

(BC-Lake-Access-Ruling)

A B-C judge has sided with a fish and game club in a decades-old fight with the Douglas Lake Cattle Company over access to two lakes near Merritt.

The cattle firm blocked road access to the lake in the 1990s and after unsuccessful attempts to negotiate access, the Nicola Valley Fish and Game Club went to court.

B-C Supreme Court Justice Joel Groves has ruled the province breached its obligation by allowing the cattle firm to close a public road for its own economic benefit.

Game club director Rick McGowan says it's just the decision the company wanted and means B-C residents will have access to all public places in the province. (The Canadian Press, CHNL)
