SECTION 4 EXERCISE OF WARRANTS
4.1 Method of Exercise of Warrants
The right to purchase Shares conferred by the Warrants may be exercised by the Holder surrendering the Warrant Certificate representing same, with a duly completed and executed subscription in the form attached hereto and a bank draft or certified cheque payable to the Company for the aggregate purchase price applicable at the time of surrender in respect of the shares subscribed for in lawful money of the United States of America, to the Company at the address set forth herein.
4.2 Effect of Exercise of Warrants
  (a)  
Upon surrender and payment as aforesaid, the Shares so subscribed for will be deemed to have been issued and such person or persons will be deemed to have become the Holder or Holders of record of such shares on the date of such surrender and payment, and such shares will be issued at the subscription price in effect on the date of such surrender and payment.
 
  (b)  
Within three business days after surrender and payment as aforesaid, the Company will forthwith cause to be delivered to the person or persons in whose name or names the Shares so subscribed for are to be issued as specified in such subscription or mailed to him or them at his or their respective addresses specified in such subscription, a certificate or certificates for the appropriate number of Shares not exceeding those which the Warrant Holder is entitled to purchase pursuant to the Warrant surrendered.
4.3 Limitation on Exercise of Warrants
The Warrant shall expire twenty-four months (24) months after the date of this Agreement and shall be exercisable at $0.30 per Share for a period of one year, commencing one year after the date of this Agreement. In other words, the term of the Warrants is two years and they are not exercisable for the first twelve months after the date of this Agreement.
4.4 Subscription for Less Than Entitlement
The Holder of any Warrant may subscribe for and purchase a number of shares less than the number which he is entitled to purchase pursuant to the surrendered Warrant. In the event of any purchase of a number of shares less than the number which can be purchased pursuant to a Warrant, the Holder thereof upon exercise thereof will in addition be entitled to receive a new Warrant in respect of the balance of the shares which he was entitled to purchase pursuant to the surrendered Warrant and which were not then purchased.
4.5 Warrants for Fractions of Shares
To the extent that the Holder of any Warrant is entitled to receive on the exercise or partial exercise thereof a fraction of a share, such right may be exercised in respect of such fraction only in combination with another Warrant or other Warrants which in the aggregate entitle the Holder to receive a whole number of such shares.

4.6 Expiration of Warrants
After the expiration of the period within which a Warrant is exercisable, all rights thereunder will wholly cease and terminate and such Warrant will be void and of no effect.
4.7 Time of Essence
Time will be of the essence hereof.
4.8 Subscription Price
Each Warrant is exercisable at a price per share (the “Exercise Price”) of U.S. $0.30. One (1) Warrant and the Exercise Price are required to subscribe for each share during the term of the Warrants.
4.9 Adjustment of Exercise Price
The Exercise Price and the number of shares deliverable upon the exercise of the Warrants will be subject to adjustment in the event and in the manner following:
  (a)  
If and whenever the shares at any time outstanding are subdivided into a greater or consolidated into a lesser number of shares the Exercise Price will be decreased or increased proportionately as the case may be; upon any such subdivision or consolidation, the number of shares deliverable upon the exercise of the Warrants will be increased or decreased proportionately as the case may be.
 
  (b)  
In case of any capital reorganization or of any reclassification of the capital of the Company or in the case of the consolidation, merger or amalgamation of the Company with or into any other Company (hereinafter collectively referred to as a “Reorganization”), each Warrant will, after such Reorganization, confer the right to purchase the number of shares or other securities of the Company (or of the Company’s resulting from such Reorganization) which the Warrant Holder would have been entitled to upon Reorganization if the Warrant Holder had been a shareholder at the time of such Reorganization.
 
  (c)  
In any such case, if necessary, appropriate adjustments will be made in the application of the provisions of this Article Four relating to the rights and interest thereafter of the Holders of the Warrants so that the provisions of this Article Four will be made applicable as nearly as reasonably possible to any shares or other securities deliverable after the Reorganization on the exercise of the Warrants.
 
  (d)  
The subdivision or consolidation of shares at any time outstanding into a greater or lesser number of shares (whether with or without par value) will not be deemed to be a Reorganization for the purposes of this clause.
 
  (e)  
The adjustments provided for in this Section are cumulative and will become effective immediately after the record date or, if no record date is fixed, the effective date of the event which results in such adjustments.

SECTION 5 WAIVER OF CERTAIN RIGHTS
5.1 Immunity of Shareholders, etc.
The Warrant Holder, as part of the consideration for the issue of the Warrants, waives and will not have any right, cause of action or remedy now or hereafter existing in any jurisdiction against any past, present or future incorporator, shareholder, Director or officer (as such) of the Company for the issue of shares pursuant to any Warrant or on any covenant, agreement, representation or warranty by the Company herein contained or in the Warrant.
