In Munro v. Nopper  A.J. No. 1114, a decision of Veit J. was faced with a similar situation in which two shareholders who each held 50% of the corporation were in dispute. She held that oppressive conduct is not the same thing as conduct which is contested. She states at paragraph 24: “[He] is not a minority shareholder; on the face of it, therefore, he is not entitled to statutory oppression remedies. However, if those remedies are not limited to minority shareholders, warring partners cannot necessarily obtain relief under the oppression provisions of corporation legislation.”
