4.12   Former Canadian Pacific Limited Optionholders
 
    Options under this Plan include options and accompanying share appreciation rights issued under the key employee stock option plan of Canadian Pacific Limited which were replaced with Options and accompanying SARs of the Corporation pursuant to the arrangement under section 192 of the Canada Business Corporations Act described in the management proxy circular of Canadian Pacific Limited dated August 3, 2001. Such Options and SARs are subject to the provisions of this Plan, with the necessary changes, provided that none of the provisions of this Plan will operate so as to adversely affect the rights of the Optionholder as set forth in the key employee stock option plan of Canadian Pacific Limited. If the Optionholder is not an officer or employee of or a consultant to the Corporation, then the early expiry provisions of the replacement Options and SARs will become effective when the Optionholder’s employment or engagement with another former subsidiary of Canadian Pacific Limited terminates.
 
4.13   Reduction in Exercise Price of Options
 
    Notwithstanding any provision in this plan to the contrary, no Option or SAR may be amended to reduce the Exercise Price to a price below the Exercise Price applicable to such Option or SAR determined at the Grant Date. In addition, no Option or SAR may be granted in exchange for, or in connection with, the cancellation or surrender of an Option, or SAR.
ARTICLE 5 -
EXERCISE OF OPTIONS
5.1   Manner of Exercise
 
    An Optionholder who wishes to exercise an Option may do so by delivering the following to the Corporation on or before the Expiry Date of the Option:
  (a)   a completed Notice of Exercise; and
 
  (b)   subject to section 5.3, a cheque (which need not be a certified cheque) or bank draft payable to the Corporation for the aggregate Exercise Price of the Optioned Shares being acquired.
    If the Optionholder is deceased or mentally disabled, the Option may be exercised by a legal representative of the Optionholder or the Optionholder’s estate or by a person who acquires the Optionholder’s rights under the Option by bequest or inheritance and who, in addition to delivering to the Corporation the Notice of Exercise and (if applicable) cheque or bank draft described above, must also deliver to the Corporation evidence of their status.
 
5.2   Delivery of Share Certificate
 
    Not later than five business days after receipt by the Corporation pursuant to section 5.1 of the Notice of Exercise and payment in full for the Optioned Shares being acquired, the Corporation will direct its registrar and transfer agent to issue a certificate in the name of the Optionholder or an intermediary on behalf of the Optionholder (or, if deceased, his or her legal representative or beneficiary) for the number of Optioned Shares purchased by the Optionholder (or his or her legal representative or beneficiary), which will be issued as fully paid and non-assessable Common Shares.

5.3   Cashless Exercise
 
    An Optionholder may elect “cashless” exercise in a Notice of Exercise if the Common Shares issuable on exercise of an Option are to be immediately sold. In such case, the Optionholder will not be required to deliver to the Corporation the cheque or bank draft referred to in section 5.1. Instead, the following procedure will be followed, as detailed in a Cashless Exercise Instruction Form to be provided by the Corporation and completed by the Optionholder:
  (a)   the Optionholder will instruct a broker selected by the Optionholder to sell through The Toronto Stock Exchange the Common Shares issuable on exercise of an Option, as soon as possible and at the then applicable bid price for the Common Shares of the Corporation;
 
  (b)   on the settlement date for the trade, the Corporation will direct its registrar and transfer agent to issue a certificate in the name of the broker (or as the broker may otherwise direct) for the number of Common Shares issued on exercise of the Option, against payment by the broker to the Corporation of the Exercise Price for such Common Shares; and
 
  (c)   the broker will deliver to the Optionholder the remaining proceeds of sale, net of brokerage commission.
5.4   Withholding
 
    If the Corporation determines that the satisfaction of taxes, including withholding tax, or other withholding liabilities is necessary or desirable in respect of the exercise of any Option, the exercise of the Option is not effective unless such taxes have been paid or withholdings made to the satisfaction of the Corporation. The Corporation may require an Optionholder to pay to the Corporation, in addition to the Exercise Price for the Optioned Shares, any amount as the Corporation is obliged to remit to the relevant taxing authority in respect of the exercise of the Option. Any such additional payment is due no later than the date on which any amount with respect to the Option exercised is required to be included in the gross income of the Optionholder for tax purposes.
