The Motor Vehicle Sales Authority of B.C. recently issued a "freeze order" on the sales licence, bank accounts and assets belonging to Southwest RV and Sport Ltd.

The company, now being run by a receiver, is one of the largest recreational-vehicle dealers on the Island, with locations in Sidney, Chemainus and Duncan.
