Summary:

A property owner granted an exclusive licence to remove all gravel from its property. A year and a half later, the owner's bank registered a lien on the property to secure a loan. A year and a half after the bank had registered its lien, the licensee registered the licence agreement. The bank applied for a declaration that its charge had priority over the licence agreement. The licensee asserted that its charge had priority, where the bank had actual notice of the licence agreement.

The Ontario Court (General Division) concluded that the bank had actual notice and dismissed the application.
