(b)     Each of Purchaser and Target will furnish to the other all such information concerning it, its Affiliates and its shareholders as may be required to effect the actions described in Section 2.3 and Section 2.9 and the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.10, and each covenants that no information furnished by it in connection with such actions or otherwise in connection with the consummation of the Transaction, will contain any untrue statement of a Material Fact or omit to state a Material Fact required to be stated or which is necessary in order to make any information so furnished not misleading in the light of the circumstances in which it is furnished or to be used.

(c)     Purchaser and Target will each promptly notify the other if at any time before the Effective Time it becomes aware that the Circular or an application for an order described in Section 2.2 or Section 2.4 or any application filed with a Governmental Entity, contains any untrue statement of a Material Fact or omits to state a Material Fact required to be stated therein or which is necessary to make the statements contained therein not misleading in light of the circumstances in which they were made, or that otherwise requires an amendment or supplement to the Circular or such application.

No waiver of any condition or other provision in whole or in part, will constitute a waiver of any other condition or provision (whether or not similar) nor will such waiver constitute a continuing waiver unless otherwise expressly provided.

Nature and Survival

4.2     All representations and warranties contained in this Agreement on the part of each of Purchaser and Target will terminate on the Effective Date provided, however, that, subject to Section 9.4, neither Purchaser or Target will be released or relieved from any liability arising from the breach by it of any of its covenants, representations or warranties set forth in this Agreement.

Insurance and Indemnification

4.3     Target hereby agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to secure directors' and officers' liability insurance for the current and former directors and officers of Target on a three year "trailing" (or "run-off") basis provided that such trailing policy is available at a reasonable cost. If a trailing policy is not available at a reasonable cost, Purchaser will use commercially reasonable efforts to, or cause Target to, maintain in effect without any reduction in scope or coverage for three years from the Effective Date customary policies of directors' and officers' liability insurance providing protection no less favourable to the protection provided by the policies maintained by Target which are in effect immediately before the Effective Date and providing protection in respect of claims arising from facts or events which occurred on or before the Effective Date, provided that they are available at a reasonable cost.

Purchaser agrees that it will cause Target to honour all rights to indemnification or exculpation now existing in favour of present and former officers and directors of Target to the extent that they are disclosed in Schedule (O) of the Target Disclosure Letter, and acknowledges that such rights, to the extent that they are disclosed in Schedule (O) of the Target Disclosure Letter, will survive the completion of the Plan of Arrangement and will continue in full force and effect for a period of not less than six years from the Effective Date.

-20-

Target will use all commercially reasonable efforts to enable Purchaser to review and comment on all such press releases before the release thereof and will enable Purchaser, to review and comment on such filings before the filing thereof, provided that the obligations herein will not prevent any party from making such disclosure as its counsel advises is required by applicable laws or the rules and policies of the reporting jurisdictions of the party, or such disclosure that is made in the ordinary course of business consistent with past practice.

-27-


(ii)     participate, directly or indirectly, in any discussions or negotiations regarding, or furnish to any person any information or otherwise co operate with, respond to, assist or participate in any Acquisition Proposal or potential Acquisition Proposal;

(iii)     remain neutral with respect to, or agree to, approve or recommend any Acquisition Proposal or potential Acquisition Proposal (it being understood that publicly taking no position or a neutral position with respect to an Acquisition Proposal until 10 Business Days following formal announcement of such Acquisition Proposal will not be considered to be a violation of this paragraph (b)(iii));

(c)     Target will, and will cause the officers, directors, employees, consultants, representatives and agents of Target and the Target Subsidiaries to, immediately terminate and cease any discussions or negotiations with any parties (other than Purchaser) with respect to any proposal that constitutes, or may reasonably be expected to constitute, an Acquisition Proposal. Target will: (i) discontinue or not allow access to any of its confidential information to any third party; and (ii) immediately request the return or destruction of all information provided to any third party that has entered into a confidentiality agreement with Target relating to a potential Acquisition Proposal to the extent that such information has not previously been returned or destroyed, and will use all commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that such requests are honoured. Target agrees not to: (iii) release any third party from any confidentiality agreement relating to a potential Acquisition Proposal to which such third party is a party except to allow a Person to propose an Acquisition Proposal to the Target Board; (iv) release any third party from any non-solicitation or standstill agreement or provision to which such third party is a party. Target also agrees not to amend, modify or waive any such confidentiality, non-solicitation or standstill agreement or provision and undertakes to enforce, or cause the Target Subsidiaries to enforce such agreements and provisions.

(d)     From and after the date of this Agreement, Target will promptly (and in any event within 24 hours) notify Purchaser, at first orally and then in writing, of any proposals, offers or written inquiries relating to or constituting an Acquisition Proposal, or any request for non-public information relating to Target. Such notice will include a description of the terms and conditions of any proposal, inquiry or offer, the identity of the person making such proposal, inquiry or offer and provide such other details of the proposal, inquiry or offer as Purchaser may reasonably request. Target will keep Purchaser fully informed on a prompt basis of the status, including any change to the material terms, of any such inquiry, proposal or offer.

Right to Accept a Superior Proposal

5.8

(a)     If Target has complied with Section 5.7 with respect thereto, Target may accept, approve, recommend or enter into any agreement, understanding or arrangement in respect of an Acquisition Proposal which the Target Board has determined to be a Superior Proposal (other than a confidentiality agreement, the execution of which will not be subject to the conditions of this Section 5.8) received before the date of approval of the Transaction by its shareholders and terminate this Agreement if, and only if:

-29-


(i)     Target has provided Purchaser with a copy of the Superior Proposal document;

(ii)     Target has provided Purchaser with the information regarding such Superior Proposal required under Section 5.7(d);

(iii)     the Target Board has determined in good faith after consultation with outside legal counsel and its financial advisors that it is necessary in order for the Board of Directors to discharge properly its fiduciary duties to withdraw or modify its approval or recommendation of this Agreement and to approve or recommend such Superior Proposal;

(iv)     five Business Days will have elapsed from the later of the date Purchaser received written notice (a "Superior Proposal Notice") advising Purchaser that the Target Board has resolved to accept, approve, recommend or enter into an agreement in respect of such Superior Proposal subject only to this Section 5.8, and the date Purchaser received a copy of such Superior Proposal document. In the event that Target provides Purchaser with a Superior Proposal Notice on a date that is less than seven Business Days before the Target Meeting of shareholders, Target shall, at the request of Purchaser, adjourn such meeting to a date that is not less than five Business Days and not more than 15 days after the date of the Superior Proposal Notice. Unless otherwise ordered by a court, Target will continue to take all reasonable steps necessary to hold the Target Meeting and to cause the Transaction to be voted on at such meeting; and

(v)     Target has previously or concurrently paid to Purchase the Termination Fee, Target acknowledging and agreeing that payment of the Termination Fee under Section 9.4 is a condition to valid termination of this Agreement under Section 9.1(f) and this Section 5.8(a).

(b)     During the five Business Day period referred to in Section 5.8(a)(iv), Target agrees that Purchaser will have the right, but not the obligation, to offer in writing to amend the terms of this Agreement, which offer must be received by Target before 5:00 p.m. (Vancouver time) on the fifth Business Day of such period in order for such offer to comply with the requirements of this Section 5.8(b). The Target Board will review any written proposal by Purchaser to amend the terms of this Agreement in good faith in order to determine, in its discretion in the exercise of its fiduciary duties, whether the amended proposal would, upon acceptance by Target, be at least equivalent to the Superior Proposal. If the Target Board so determines, it will enter into an amended agreement with Purchaser reflecting the amended proposal. If the Target Board does not so determine, Target may accept, approve, recommend or enter into an agreement, understanding or arrangement in respect of such Superior Proposal, subject to compliance with Section 9.4 hereof.

(c)      Each Party also acknowledges and agrees that each successive material modification of any Acquisition Proposal will constitute a new Acquisition Proposal for the purposes of the requirement under clause (iv) of Section 5.8(a) and will initiate an additional five Business Day notice period.

Purchaser may not rely on the failure to satisfy any of the above conditions precedent as a basis for non-compliance by Purchaser with its obligations under this Agreement if the condition precedent would have been satisfied but for a material default by Purchaser in complying with its obligations hereunder.

Conditions Precedent to the Obligations of Target

7.3     The obligation of Target to complete the transactions contemplated by this Agreement will also be subject to the following conditions precedent (each of which is for the exclusive benefit of Target and may be waived by Target in its sole discretion and any one or more of which, if not satisfied or waived, will relieve Target of any obligation under this Agreement), on or before the Termination Date or such earlier time as is specified below:

Notice and Cure Provisions

7.5    Each of the Parties will give prompt notice to the other of the occurrence, or failure to occur, at any time from the date hereof until the Effective Date, of any event or state of facts that would likely:

(b)     result in the failure of such Person to comply with or satisfy any covenant, condition or agreement to be complied with or satisfied by it under this Agreement before the Effective Date.

Purchaser or Target may elect to not complete the Transaction contemplated hereby pursuant to the conditions precedent contained in Section 7.1, Section 7.2 and Section 7.3, as the case may be, or exercise any termination right arising therefrom, only if forthwith and in any event before the Effective Date, Purchaser or Target, as the case may be, has delivered a written notice to the other specifying in reasonable detail all breaches of covenants, representations and warranties or other matters which Purchaser or Target, as the case may be, is asserting as the basis for the non-fulfilment of the applicable condition precedent or the exercise of the termination right, as the case may be. If any such notice is delivered, provided that Purchaser or Target, as the case may be, is proceeding diligently to cure such matter, if such matter is susceptible to being cured, the other may not terminate this Agreement until the expiration of a period of 20 days from such notice. If such notice has been given before the making of the application for the Final Order, such application will be postponed until the expiry of such period. For greater certainty, in the event that such matter is cured within the time period referred to herein, this Agreement may not be terminated as a result of such matter.

-36-

(h)     by Purchaser, if, subject to Section 7.4, a failure to perform, in all material respects, any covenant or agreement on the part of Target set forth in this Agreement that would cause the conditions set forth in Section 7.1 or Section 7.2 not to be satisfied, and such conditions are incapable of being satisfied by the Termination Date; provided that Purchaser is not then in breach of this Agreement so as to cause any of the conditions set forth in Section 7.1 or Section 7.3 not to be satisfied; or

-37-


(i)     by Target, if, subject to Section 7.4, a failure to perform, in all material respects, any covenant or agreement on the part of Purchaser set forth in this Agreement that would cause the conditions set forth in Section 7.1 or Section 7.3 not to be satisfied, and such conditions are incapable of being satisfied by the Termination Date; provided that Target is not then in breach of this Agreement so as to cause any of the conditions set forth in Section 7.1 or Section 7.2 not to be satisfied.

Where action is taken to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 9.1, it will be sufficient for such action to be authorized by the Board of Directors of the Person taking such action.

Effect of Termination

9.2     In the event of termination of this Agreement by either Target or Purchaser as provided in Section 9.1, this Agreement will forthwith become void and have no further effect, and there will be no liability or further obligation on the part of Target or Purchaser or their respective officers or directors under the Transaction Documents, except that:

(a)     the provisions of Section 9.3 and Section 9.4 (Expenses and Termination Fees), and this Section 9.2 will remain in full force and effect and will survive any such termination;

(b)     neither Target nor Purchaser will be released or relieved from any liability arising from their breach of any of their representations, warranties, covenants, or agreements as set forth in the Transaction Documents save and except as provided therein; and

(c)     the covenant of Purchaser and Target with respect to confidentiality set forth in the Confidentiality Agreement will survive the termination of this Agreement or completion of the Transaction and continue in full force and effect for a period of two years thereafter.

Expenses

9.3     Whether or not the Transaction is consummated, except as otherwise provided herein, all costs and expenses incurred in connection with this Agreement and the Transaction (including the fees and expenses of advisors, accountants and legal counsel) will be paid by the Person incurring such expense.

Termination Fees

9.4     If this Agreement is terminated pursuant to

(a)     Section 9.1(e) in circumstances where a bona fide Acquisition Proposal, or the intention to enter a bona fide Acquisition Proposal with respect to Target, has been publicly announced before the termination of this Agreement and not withdrawn, and within 12 months of the date of such termination:

(i)     the Person who made such Acquisition Proposal or an affiliate of such Person:

-38-


(A)     directly or indirectly acquires Target by arrangement, business combination or otherwise;

(B)     directly or indirectly acquires the assets of Target that: (1) constitute more than 20% of the consolidated assets of Target; (2) generate more than 20% of the consolidated revenue of Target; or (3) generate more than 20% of the consolidated operating income of Target; or

(C)     directly or indirectly acquires more than 50% of the Target Shares; or

(b)     Section 9.1(f); or

(c)     Section 9.1(g);

Target will pay to Purchaser an amount equal to USD $300,000 in cash or immediately available funds (the "Termination Fee").

Each of Purchaser and Target acknowledges and agrees that if the full fee is paid to Purchaser by Target pursuant to Section 9.4, the amount so paid and accepted is in lieu of any damages or any other payment or remedy which Purchaser may be entitled to and will constitute payment of liquidated damages which are a genuine estimate of the damages which Purchaser will suffer or incur as a result of the event giving rise to such damages and the resultant termination of this Agreement and are not penalties. Target irrevocably waives any right it may have to raise as a defense that any such liquidated damages are excessive or punitive. For greater certainty, Purchaser agrees that the payment of any amount pursuant to Section 9.4 is the sole monetary remedy available to it and that it will not have any alternative right or remedy against Target for damages, whether for consequential damages or otherwise. Nothing in this Section 9.4 will preclude a Party from seeking injunctive relief to restrain any breach or threatened breach of the covenants or agreements set forth in this Agreement or the Confidentiality Agreement or otherwise to obtain specific performance of any such covenants or agreements, without the necessity of posting bond or security in connection therewith.

5.1     Notwithstanding Section 3.1, holders of Target Shares may exercise rights of dissent (the "Dissent Rights") in connection with the Arrangement pursuant to the Interim Order and in the manner set forth in sections 242 to 247 of the BCBCA (collectively, the "Dissent Procedures").

5.3     If a Target Shareholder exercises the Dissent Right, Purchaser will on the Effective Date set aside a number of Purchaser Shares which is attributable under the Arrangement to the Target Shares for which Dissent Rights have been exercised. If the dissenting Target Shareholder is ultimately not entitled to be paid for their Dissenting Shares, they will be deemed to have participated in the Arrangement on the same basis as the non-dissenting Target Shareholders and Purchaser will distribute to such Target Shareholder the Purchaser Shares that the Target Shareholder is entitled to receive pursuant to the terms of the Arrangement.

To the extent that amounts are so withheld, such withheld amounts will be treated for all purposes hereof as having been paid to the holder of the shares in respect of which such deduction and withholding was made, provided that such withheld amounts are actually remitted to the appropriate taxing authority. Each of Target, Purchaser and the Depositary is hereby authorized to sell or otherwise dispose of such portion of Purchaser Shares payable as consideration as is necessary to provide sufficient funds to Purchaser, Target or the Depositary, as the case may be, to enable it to implement such deduction or withholding, and Purchaser, Target or the Depositary will notify the holder thereof and remit to the holder any unapplied balance of the net proceeds of such sale.
