Fiduciary Duties of Shareholders and Directors
University of Saskatchewan
Journal of Business Law, p. 277, 2004

The main difficulty is that judges have wrongly characterized corporate law issues as matters of fiduciary regulation. The author sets out the conventional justification for the status and fact-based fiduciary obligations of shareholders and directors and then explains how the corporate jurisprudence has gone astray.
