A statement of claim filed in Court of Queen's Bench on Wednesday alleges hundreds of people invested their savings in a scheme that improperly siphoned millions of dollars to Ronald James Aitkens and seven other people named in the suit.
...
The suit alleges Aitkens created a series of entities called the Harvest Group of Companies, which raised $500 million for 16 ventures in real estate development, resource development and financial investment since 2001.
...
Although the plaintiffs don't claim to know the exact role each of the seven defendants allegedly played, the suit describes Aitkens as the "directing or controlling mind" of the companies involved.
"Aitkens personally moved the scheme forward, made misrepresentations as described above to the investors and received benefit from investors' funds. Aitkens was the 'face' of the Harvest Group of Companies and of the investment scheme," the statement of claim said.
History
www.foundationcapital.ca, 10 June 2011 [cached]
The Founder and President of the Harvest Group of Companies is Ron Aitkens, an Alberta businessman and entrepreneur, who in May of 1994 established a financial services business in Lethbridge, Alberta called Harvest Financial Services Inc.
Like most financial services companies, Ron focused on conventional investment and financial products including life insurance, mutual funds and other Stock Market based investments. Early in the life of the Harvest Group, Ron came to the conviction that the Stock Market was not necessarily the best place to generate consistent returns for investors and that there were existing, great opportunities for generating returns in private, asset backed investments.
...
Since its founding, Ron established Harvest Capital Management Inc. for the purpose of introducing commercial real estate investments to thousands of investors looking for cash flow and flow-through tax savings benefits. Harvest Capital was a true pioneer in making commercial real estate investing available to thousands of investors, having syndicated 26 successful commercial real estate projects over the past 10 years.
In 2006, Ron established Foundation Capital Corporation to introduce new development projects as yet another category of profitable Real Estate investing. As part of his strategy towards new real estate development success, Ron assembled a world class development team to steward the projects, even through the challenges of the global recession in 2008-2009.
