E-Debit Global Corporation Files Appeal to British Columbia Securities Commission Cease Trade Order Dated December 23, 2010

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Jan. 11, 2011) - E-Debit Global Corporation (OTCBB:WSHE) ("E-Debit" or "the Company") has delivered to the British Columbia Securities Commission notice requesting a hearing with the Commission to appeal a Cease Trade Order delivered to E-Debit by facsimile on December 23, 2010.

Management's Commentary:

"We are very disappointed in the issuance of the British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC) "Cease Trade Order" which was delivered to our Calgary, Alberta headquarters by facsimile at 2:30 pm on December 23, 2010 and acknowledged by the Company at or near 1:30 pm upon receipt on December 29, 2010," stated Doug Mac Donald, E-Debit's President and CEO.

"For the past 10 years we have met all our filing requirements related to our publicly traded status on the Over the Counter Bulletin Board under the trading symbol "WSHE" and have been continually fully compliant in regards to all regulatory filings related to our business activities both in Canada and the United States. (These documents can be reviewed through our E-Debit website link to the SEC on the E-Debit website).

Our advice to date received from the BCSC is they have deemed the Company's retention of Open Waters Investments Inc. as its contracted Investment Relations Firm, as grounds to determine that E-Debit has a "significant connection" to the Province of British Columbia and as a result has determined E-Debit Global Corporation, a Colorado corporation, as an OTC reporting issuer under BC Instrument 51-509 Issuers Quoted in the U.S. Over-the Counter Markets (BCI 51-509). The Company disagrees.

In our notice to the BCSC, the Company outlined its grounds for appeal as "E-Debit does not have any significant connections with British Columbia through its management, investor relations, or sale of seed stock".

We have requested that the BCSC set the hearing date of our appeal at its earliest possible convenience to the Commission as time is of the essence in this matter for the Company and our shareholders.

All related correspondence with the BCSC will be posted shortly on the E-Debit website for review. In addition we have requested from the BCSC an exemption to allow for the filing of our SEC documents on SEDAR and be granted reporting issuer status. We will advise the results of our efforts in bringing this matter to a suitable close as they are received," Mr. Mac Donald advised.
