Advance Notice By-Law

The shareholders also adopted an amendment to the Company's by-laws to include advance notice provisions. The purpose of these provisions is to require that advance notice be provided to the Company in circumstances in which nominations of persons for election to the board of directors of the Company are made by shareholders other than pursuant to the requisition of a meeting or a shareholder proposal in accordance with the Canada Business Corporations Act.

Among other things, the by-law amendment fixes a deadline by which shareholders must provide notice to the Company of nominations for election to the board and sets forth the information that a shareholder must include in the notice to the Company for the notice to be in proper written form.

In the case of an annual meeting of shareholders, notice to the Company must be made not less than 30 or more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual meeting. However, in the event that the annual meeting is to be held on a date that is less than 50 days after the date on which the first public announcement of the date of the annual meeting was made, notice may be made not later than the close of business on the 10th day following such public announcement. The by-law amendment is effective immediately.  A copy of the amendment, containing the full details of the advance notice provisions has been filed under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
