This was an application by the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia for a declaration pursuant to the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act that a judgment against a driver for an intentional act of violence by means of a vehicle survives the discharge provisions of the Act. The court held that section 178 of the Act, which states that a judgment for damages similar in nature to a fine, penalty or restitution order was immune from discharge under the Act, applied, and the judgment debt to ICBC therefore survived the respondent’s bankruptcy.
