LEGAL_1 :28825770.9


-14-

(i)
on the applicable Borrowing Date, if the Accommodation is by way of Prime Rate Loans and is a new issue or if any such Accommodation to be drawn, converted or rolled over has a Canadian Dollar Amount in the aggregate equal to or greater than One Million Canadian Dollars (Cdn.$1,000,000) and multiples of One Million Canadian Dollars (Cdn.$1,000,000) in excess thereof.

(ii)
on the Business Day preceding the applicable Borrowing Date if the Accommodation is by way of Bankers' Acceptances or Discount Notes and is a new issue or if any such Accommodation to be drawn, converted or rolled over has a Canadian Dollar Amount in the aggregate equal to or greater than Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Canadian Dollars (Cdn.$250,000).

The Borrower acknowledges, confirms and agrees with the Administrative Agent that all such books and records kept by the Administrative Agent will constitute prima facie evidence of the balance owing by the Borrower under this Agreement; provided, however, that the failure to make any entry or recording in such books and records shall not limit or otherwise affect the obligations of the Borrower under this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each Lender is responsible for maintaining its own records as to Advances made by it, and in the event of any inconsistency between such Lender's and the Administrative Agent's records, the Administrative Agent's records shall govern, absent manifest error.

2.6    Further Provisions Account/Evidence of Borrowings

(a)
Co-ordination of Prime Rate Loans. Each Lender shall advance its Proportionate Share of each Prime Rate Loan in accordance with the following provisions:

(i)
the Administrative Agent shall advise each Lender of its receipt of a notice from the Borrower pursuant to Section 2.4, on the day such notice is received and shall, as soon as possible, advise each Lender of such Lender's Proportionate Share of any Prime Rate Loan requested by the notice;

(ii)
each Lender shall deliver its Proportionate Share of such Loan to the Administrative Agent's Account at the Branch not later than 11 :00 a.m. (Toronto, Ontario time) on the Borrowing Date;


LEGAL_1 :28825770.9


-15-

(iii)
when the Administrative Agent determines that all the conditions precedent to a Borrowing specified in this Agreement have been met or waived, it shall advance to the Borrower the amount delivered by each Lender by crediting the relevant Borrower's Account(s) before 12:00 p.m. on the Borrowing Date, but if the conditions precedent to the Borrowing are not met or waived by 2:30 p.m. on the Borrowing Date, the Administrative Agent shall return the funds to the Lenders or invest them in an overnight investment as orally instructed by each Lender until such time as the Loan is advanced; and

(iv)
if the Administrative Agent determines that a Lender's Proportionate Share of a Prime Rate Loan would not be a whole multiple of One Hundred Thousand Canadian Dollars (Cdn.$100,000), the amount to be advanced by that Lender may be increased or reduced by the Administrative Agent in its sole discretion to the nearest whole multiple of One Hundred Thousand Canadian Dollars (Cdn.$100,000).

2.7    Bankers' Acceptances

(a)
Power of Attorney for the Execution of Bankers' Acceptances. To facilitate acceptance of the Borrowings by way of Bankers' Acceptances, the Borrower hereby appoints each Lender as its attorney to sign and endorse on its behalf, in handwriting or by facsimile or mechanical signature as and when deemed necessary by such Lender, blank forms of Drafts. In this respect, it is each Lender's responsibility to maintain an adequate supply of blank forms of Drafts for acceptance under this Agreement. The Borrower recognizes and agrees that all Drafts signed and/or endorsed on its behalf by a Lender shall bind the Borrower fully and effectively as if signed in the handwriting of and duly issued by the proper signing officers of the Borrower. Each Lender is hereby authorized to issue such Drafts endorsed in blank in such face amounts as may be determined by such Lenders; provided that the aggregate amount thereof is equal to the aggregate amount of Bankers' Acceptances required to be accepted and purchased by such Lender. No Lender shall be liable for any damage, loss or other claim arising by reason of any loss or improper use of any such instrument, except the gross negligence or wilful misconduct of the Lender or its officers, employees, agents or representatives. Each Lender shall maintain a record with respect to Bankers' Acceptances held by it in blank hereunder, voided by it for any reason, accepted and purchased by it hereunder, and cancelled at the respective maturities. Each Lender agrees to provide such records to the Borrower at the Borrower's expense upon request.

Drafts drawn by the Borrower to be accepted as Bankers' Acceptances shall be signed by a duly authorized officer or officers of the Borrower or by its attorneys. Notwithstanding that any Person whose signature appears on any Bankers' Acceptance may no longer be an authorized signatory for the Borrower at the time of issuance of a Bankers' Acceptance; that signature shall nevertheless be valid and sufficient for all purposes as if the authority had remained in force at the time of issuance and any Bankers' Acceptance so signed shall be binding on the Borrower. Upon tender of each Draft the Borrower shall pay to the Lender the fee specified in Section 4.1 with respect to such Draft.

For clarity, Section 2.7 shall apply to Discount Notes, mutatis mutandis.

(b)
Sale of Bankers' Acceptances. It shall be the responsibility of each Lender unless otherwise requested by the Borrower, to purchase its Bankers' Acceptances at a discount rate equal to the BA Discount Rate.

LEGAL_1 :28825770.9


-16-


In accordance with the procedures set forth in Paragraph 2.7(c)(iii), unless the Borrower requests the Lenders not to purchase the subject Bankers' Acceptances, the Administrative Agent will make BA Discount Proceeds received by it from the Lenders available to the Borrower on the Borrowing Date by crediting the Borrower's Account with such amount.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if in the determination of the Majority Lenders acting reasonably a market for Bankers' Acceptances does not exist at any time, or the Lenders collectively cannot for other reasons readily sell Bankers' Acceptances or perform their other obligations under this Agreement with respect to Bankers' Acceptances, then upon at least two (2) Business Days' written notice by the Administrative Agent to the Borrower, the Borrower's right to request Accommodation by way of Bankers' Acceptances shall be and remain suspended until the Administrative Agent notifies the Borrower that any condition causing such determination no longer exists.

( c)
Coordination of BA Borrowings. Each Lender shall advance its Proportionate Share of each Borrowing by way of Bankers' Acceptances in accordance with the following:

(i)
the Administrative Agent, promptly following receipt of a notice from the Borrower pursuant to Section 2.4 requesting a Borrowing by way of Bankers' Acceptances, shall advise each Lender of the aggregate face amount and term(s) of the Bankers' Acceptances to be accepted by it, which term(s) shall be identical for all Lenders. The aggregate face amount of Bankers' Acceptances to be accepted by a Lender shall be determined by the Administrative Agent by reference to the respective Commitments of the Lenders, except that, if the face amount of a Bankers' Acceptance would not be One Hundred Thousand Canadian Dollars (Cdn.$100,000) or a whole multiple thereof, the face amount shall be increased or reduced by the Administrative Agent in its sole discretion to the nearest whole multiple of One Hundred Thousand Canadian Dollars (Cdn.$100,000);

(ii)
unless requested by the Borrower not to purchase the subject Bankers' Acceptances, each Lender shall transfer to the Administrative Agent at the Branch for value on each Borrowing Date immediately available Canadian Dollars in an aggregate amount equal to the BA Discount Proceeds of all Bankers' Acceptances accepted and sold or purchased by the Lender on such Borrowing Date, net of the applicable Bankers' Acceptance Fees in respect of such Bankers' Acceptances. Each Lender shall also advise the Administrative Agent (which shall promptly give the relevant particulars to the Borrower) as soon as possible of the discount rate at which it has sold or purchased its Bankers' Acceptances;

(iii)
if the Borrower requests the Lenders not to purchase the subject Bankers' Acceptances, each Lender will forward the subject Bankers' Acceptances to the Administrative Agent for delivery against payment of the applicable Bankers' Acceptance Fees; and

(iv)
if the Administrative Agent determines that all the conditions precedent to a Borrowing specified in this Agreement have been met or waived, it shall advance to the Borrower the amount delivered by each Lender by crediting the Borrower's Account prior to 12:00 p.m. on the Borrowing Date, or, if applicable shall deliver the Bankers' Acceptances as directed by the Borrower, but if the conditions precedent to the Borrowing are not met or waived by 2:30 p.m. on the Borrowing Date, the

LEGAL_1 :28825770.9

Administrative Agent shall return the funds to the Lenders or invest them in an overnight investment as orally instructed by each Lender until such time as the Advance is made.

(d)
Payment. The Borrower shall provide for the payment to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders of the face amount of each Bankers' Acceptance at its maturity, either by payment of the amount thereof or through utilization of the Credit Facility in accordance with this Agreement (by rolling over the Bankers' Acceptance or converting it into other Accommodation or a combination thereof). The Borrower will continue to be required to provide as aforesaid for each Bankers' Acceptance at maturity notwithstanding the fact that a Lender may be the holder of the Bankers' Acceptance which has been accepted by such Lender.

(e)    Collateralization.

(i)
If any Bankers' Acceptance is outstanding on the Demand Date or the Maturity Date, the Borrower shall on such date pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders at the Branch in Canadian Dollars an amount equal to the face amount of such Bankers' Acceptance.

(ii)
All funds received by the Administrative Agent pursuant to Subsection 2.7(e) shall be held by the Administrative Agent for set-off on the maturity date of the Bankers' Acceptance against the liability of the Borrower to the Lender in respect of such Bankers' Acceptance and, until then, shall be invested from time to time in such form of investment at the Branch designated by the Borrower and approved by the Administrative Agent, for a term corresponding to the Maturity Date of the applicable Bankers' Acceptance and shall bear interest at the rate payable by the Administrative Agent on deposits of similar currency, amount and maturity. The balance of all such funds (together with interest thereon) held by the Administrative Agent will be applied to repayment of all debts and liabilities of the Borrower to the Lender under this Agreement and the Credit Documents and following repayment of all such debts and liabilities any amount remaining shall be paid to the Borrower or as otherwise required by law.

(f)
Notice of Rollover or Conversion. The Borrower shall give the Administrative Agent notice in the form attached as Schedule 2(C) not later than 12:00 p.m. (Toronto, Ontario time) at least two (2) Business Days prior to the maturity date of Bankers' Acceptances having an aggregate principal amount equal to or exceeding Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Canadian Dollars (Cdn.$250,000), specifying the Accommodation into which the Bankers' Acceptances will be renewed or converted on maturity.

any lack of validity or enforceability of any Draft accepted by a Lender as a Bankers' Acceptance; or


LEGAL_1 :28825770.9


-18-

(ii)

(h)
Shortfall on Drawdowns, Rollovers and Conversions. The Borrower agrees that:

(i)
the difference between the amount of a Borrowing requested by the Borrower by way of Bankers' Acceptance and the actual proceeds of the Bankers' Acceptance;

(ii)
the difference between the actual proceeds of a Bankers' Acceptance, and the amount required to pay a maturing Bankers' Acceptance if a Bankers' Acceptance is being rolled over; and

(iii)
the difference between the actual proceeds of a Bankers' Acceptance and the amount required to repay any Borrowing which is being converted to a Bankers' Acceptance,

shall be funded and paid by the Borrower from its own resources, by 12:00 p.m. (Toronto, Ontario time) on the day of the Borrowing or may be advanced as a Prime Rate Loan if the Borrower is otherwise entitled to such Accommodation and the Administrative Agent will apply such Prime Rate Loan to discharge the obligations of the Borrower under such Bankers' Acceptance. Any such Prime Rate Loan so made shall be subject to the terms and provisions of this Agreement, including payment of interest at the rates specified in Section 3 .1.

(i)
Depository Bills and Notes Act. At the option of any Lender, Bankers' Acceptances under this Agreement to be accepted by that Lender may be issued in the form of Depository Bills for a deposit with the Canadian Depository for Securities Limited pursuant to the Depository Bills and Notes Act (Canada). All Depository Bills so issued shall be governed by the provisions of this Section 2.7.

2.8    Safekeeping of Drafts

The responsibility of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders in respect of the safekeeping of Drafts, Bankers' Acceptances, Discount Notes and other bills of exchange which are delivered to any of them hereunder shall be limited to the exercise of the same degree of care which such party gives to its own property, provided that such party shall not be deemed to be an insurer thereof.

2.9    Certification to Third Parties

The Administrative Agent will promptly provide to the Borrower and third parties at the request of the Borrower a certificate as to the Canadian Dollar Amount of Accommodations outstanding from time to time under this Agreement, and giving such other particulars in respect of the Indebtedness as the Borrower may reasonably request.

2.10    BA Equivalent Loans and Discount Notes

(a)
Whenever the Borrower requests a Loan by way of Bankers' Acceptances, each Non-Acceptance Lender shall, in lieu of accepting a Bankers' Acceptance, make a BA Equivalent Loan in an amount equal to the Non-Acceptance Lender's percentage of the Loan.

(b)
As set out in the definition of Bankers' Acceptances, that term includes Discount Notes and all terms of this Agreement applicable to Bankers' Acceptances shall apply equally to

LEGAL_1 :28825770.9


-19-

Discount Notes evidencing BA Equivalent Loans with such changes as may in the context be necessary. For greater certainty:

(i)
the term of a Discount Note shall be the same as the term for Bankers' Acceptances accepted and purchased on the same Borrowing Date in respect of the same Loan;

(ii)
an acceptance fee will be payable in respect of a Discount Note and shall be calculated at the same rate and in the same manner as the acceptance fee in respect of a Bankers' Acceptance; and

(iii)
the CDOR rate applicable to a Discount Note shall be the CDOR rate applicable to Bankers' Acceptances accepted by a Lender on the same drawdown, rollover or conversion, as the case may be, in respect of the same Loan.

ARTICLE 3
INTEREST

3.1    Interest on Prime Rate Loans

Each Prime Rate Loan shall bear interest (both before and after demand, maturity, default and, to the extent permitted by law, judgment, with interest on overdue interest at the same rate) from and including the Borrowing Date for such Loan to, but not including, the date of repayment of such Loan on the unpaid principal amount of such Loan at a nominal rate per annum equal to the Prime Rate plus the Applicable Margin, which shall, in each case, change automatically without notice to the Borrower as and when: (i) the Prime Rate shall change so that at all times the rates set forth above shall be the Prime Rate then in effect; and (ii) the Applicable Margin shall change so that at all times the Applicable Margin shall be computed on the basis of the actual rating of the Borrower then in effect. Interest on each Prime Rate Loan shall be computed on the basis of the actual number of days elapsed divided by 365 or 366, as applicable. Interest in respect of outstanding Prime Rate Loans shall be payable monthly in arrears on the first Business Day of each month; provided, however, that interest on overdue interest shall be payable on demand.

3.2    Interest on Overdue Amounts

The Borrower will on demand pay interest to the Administrative Agent on all amounts (other than as provided in Section 3 .1) payable by the Borrower pursuant to this Agreement that are not paid when due at the Prime Rate plus the Applicable Margin plus 2% per annum, in the case of amounts payable in Canadian Dollars, calculated daily and compounded monthly from the date of payment until paid in full (both before and after demand, maturity, default and, to the extent permitted by law, judgment), with interest on overdue interest at the same rate.

3.3    Other Interest

The Borrower shall pay interest on all amounts payable hereunder at the rate specified herein or, if no rate is specified, at the Prime Rate plus the Applicable Margin calculated daily and compounded monthly, from the date due until paid in full (both before and after demand, maturity, default and, to the extent permitted by law, judgment).

3.4    Interest Act (Canada)

For the purpose of the Interest Act (Canada), the yearly rate of interest to which interest calculated on the basis of a year of three hundred and sixty (360) or three hundred and sixty-five (365) days is equivalent is

LEGAL_1 :28825770.9


-20-

the rate of interest as so determined multiplied by the actual number of days in such year divided by three hundred and sixty (360) or three hundred and sixty-five (365), respectively.

3.5    Deemed Reinvestment Principle

For the purpose of the Interest Act (Canada), the principle of deemed reinvestment of interest shall not apply to any interest calculation under this Agreement and the rates of interest stipulated in this Agreement are intended to be nominal rates and not effective rates or yields.

3.6    Maximum Return

It is the intent of the parties hereto that the return to the Lenders pursuant to this Agreement shall not exceed the maximum return permitted under the laws of Canada and if the return to the Lenders would, but for this provision, exceed the maximum return permitted under the laws of Canada, the return to the Lenders shall be limited to the maximum return permitted under the laws of Canada and this Agreement shall automatically be modified without the necessity of any further act or deed to give effect to the restriction on return set forth above.

3.7    Inability to Determine Rates

(a)
If the Administrative Agent or Lenders determine that for any reason a market for Bankers' Acceptances does not exist at any time or the Lenders cannot for other reasons, after reasonable efforts, readily sell Bankers' Acceptances or perform their other obligations under this Agreement with respect to Bankers' Acceptances, the Administrative Agent will promptly so notify the Borrower and each Lender. Thereafter, the Borrower's right to request the acceptance of Bankers' Acceptances shall be and remain suspended until the Lenders determine and the Administrative Agent notifies the Borrower and each Lender that the condition causing such determination no longer exists. Any notice of drawdown or rollover in respect of a Bankers' Acceptance which is outstanding shall be cancelled and any outstanding notice of conversion to convert a Prime Rate Loan into a Bankers' Acceptance shall be cancelled and the request for a drawdown or rollover by means of Bankers' Acceptance shall be deemed to be a request for a drawdown of, or rollover to, a Prime Rate Loan in the face amount of the requested Bankers' Acceptance.

(b)
If a Market Disruption Event occurs for the Majority Lenders, which Lenders shall have aggregate Commitments representing at least 66.7% of the total Commitment (the "Requisite Disruption Lenders"), in relation to a Prime Rate Loan, Bankers' Acceptance or Discount Note for any period, then the rate of interest on such Prime Rate Loan, Bankers' Acceptance or Discount Note for such period (which, in any event, will not commence prior to the date the Borrower is notified in writing of such Market Disruption Event) for such Requisite Disruption Lenders shall be the rate per annum which is the sum of:

(i)
the Applicable Margin for such Prime Rate Loan, Bankers' Acceptance or Discount Note for such period; plus

(ii)
the rate notified by such Requisite Disruption Lenders to the Borrower as soon as practicable and, in any event, before interest is due to be paid in respect of that period, to be that which expresses as a percentage rate per annum the cost to such Lenders of funding the Prime Rate Loan, Bankers' Acceptance or Discount Note from whatever source they may reasonably select.


LEGAL_1 :28825770.9


-21-

If a Market Disruption Event occurs with respect to Requisite Disruption Lenders and such Requisite Disruption Lenders, the Administrative Agent or the Borrower so requires, such Requisite Disruption Lenders, the Borrower and the Administrative Agent shall enter into negotiations (for a period of not more than 30 days) with a view to agreeing on a substitute basis for determining the rate of interest applicable in respect of such Requisite Disruption Lenders. Any alternative basis agreed pursuant to this Section 3.7(b) for such Requisite Disruption Lenders shall be binding on all such parties, it being agreed that such alternative basis shall apply only to such Requisite Disruption Lenders. In the absence of such agreement, the rate of interest applicable to any such Lender shall be the rate provided for above in this Section 3.7(b). If a Market Disruption Event occurs with respect to Requisite Disruption Lenders at any time, the Borrower may request that any outstanding notice of drawdown by way of, or rollover of Bankers' Acceptance be deemed to be a request for a drawdown of, or conversion to, a Prime Rate Loan and that any outstanding notice of conversion to convert a Prime Rate Loan into a Bankers' Acceptance shall be cancelled.


ARTICLE 4
FEES

4.1    Acceptance Fees

Upon the acceptance of any Draft pursuant to this Agreement, the Borrower will pay to the Agent for the account of the relevant Lenders an acceptance fee in Canadian Dollars calculated on the face amount and the term of such Draft, in accordance with the Applicable Margin in effect on the date of acceptance.

10.2    Conditions Precedent to Subsequent Borrowings

Notwithstanding the execution of this Agreement by any of the parties hereto, the Lenders shall not be bound by the terms of this Agreement nor obliged to make available any portion of any Borrowing after the initial Borrowing, unless the Borrower (by way of the delivery of a Borrower's Certificate of Compliance), or the Borrower's counsel (if appropriate), confirms to the Administrative Agent that each of the following conditions is satisfied:

(e)
all fees payable on or before the date of any subsequent Borrowing under the Fee Letter and this Agreement shall have been paid to the applicable party as and when due and payable thereunder; and

LEGAL_1 :28825770.9


-34-


(f)
the Trust Indenture shall not have been amended.

10.3    Waiver

The Lenders may, at their option, waive any condition precedent set out in Section 10.1 or 10.2 or make available any Borrowing prior to such condition precedent being fulfilled. Any such Borrowing shall be deemed to be made pursuant to the terms hereof. Any such waiver shall not be effective unless it is in writing and shall not operate to excuse the Borrower from full and complete compliance with this Article 10 or any other provision hereof on future occasions.
ARTICLE 11
EVENTS OF DEFAULT

11.1    Events of Default

Any of the following events shall constitute an "Event of Default" hereunder:

(a)
Trust Indenture. Each of the events set out in Section 10.1 of the Trust Indenture including applicable notice and grace periods;

(b)
Default in Payment of any Amount Hereunder. If the Borrower fails to pay any interest, fees or any amount owing to the Lenders or any of them hereunder (other than principal amounts), or under any Credit Document when due and payable hereunder or thereunder and the Borrower fails to pay such interest, fees or any amount owing to the Lenders or any of them hereunder (other than principal amounts) within five (5) Business Days after notice is given by the Administrative Agent to the Borrower. For clarity, the failure to pay a principal payment shall be an immediate Event of Default and the Administrative Agent shall have the remedies available pursuant to Section 11.2;

(c)
Default in Other Provisions. If the Borrower shall fail, refuse or default in any material respect with the performance or observance of any of the covenants, agreements or conditions contained herein and such failure, refusal or default adversely affects the Lenders and, such failure, refusal or default continues for a period of thirty (30) days after written notice thereof by the Administrative Agent; and

(d)
Full Force and Effect. If this Agreement or any material portion hereof shall, at any time after its respective execution and delivery and for any reason, cease in any way to be in full force and effect or if the validity or enforceability of this Agreement is disputed in any manner by the Borrower and the Credit Facility have not been repaid within 30 days of demand therefor by the Administrative Agent.

11.2    Remedies

Upon the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default, and at any time thereafter if the Default or Event of Default shall then be continuing, the Lenders in their sole discretion may direct the Administrative Agent to give notice to the Borrower that no further Accommodation will be available hereunder while the Default or Event of Default continues, whereupon the Lenders shall not be obliged to provide any further Borrowings to the Borrower while the Default or Event of Default continues. Upon the occurrence of any Event of Default, and at any time thereafter if the Event of Default shall then be continuing, the Lenders in their sole discretion, and the Administrative Agent acting on their behalf, may take any or all of the following actions:


LEGAL_1 :28825770.9


-35-

(a)
demand payment of any principal, accrued interest, fees and other amounts which are then due and owing in respect of the Accommodations under the Credit Facility without presentment, protest or other notice of any kind, all of which are hereby expressly waived by the Borrower;

(b)
declare by notice to the Borrower the Credit Facility terminated, whereupon the same shall terminate immediately without any further notice of any kind;

(c)
demand payment of the Pledged Bond in accordance with the provisions of the Bond Delivery Agreement; and

(d)
assign all or any part of the outstanding Accommodations and the amounts payable hereunder to any Person without reference to Article 12.

11.3    Remedies Cumulative

The rights and remedies of the Lenders and the Administrative Agent under this Agreement and the Credit Documents are cumulative.

11.4    Appropriation of Moneys Received

The Lenders, and the Administrative Agent on behalf of the Lenders as between the Lenders and the Borrower, may from time to time when an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing appropriate any monies received from the Borrower in or toward payment of such of the obligations of the Borrower hereunder as the Lenders in their sole discretion may see fit.

11.5    Non-Merger

The taking of any action or dealing whatsoever by the Lender or the Administrative Agent in respect of the Borrower or any security shall not operate as a merger of any of the obligations of the Borrower to the Lenders or the Administrative Agent or in any way suspend payment or affect or prejudice the rights, remedies and powers, legal or equitable, which the Lenders or the Administrative Agent may have under Section 11.3 in connection with such obligations.

11.6    Waiver

No delay on the part of the Lenders or the Administrative Agent in exercising any right or privilege hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof. No Default or Event of Default shall be waived except by a written waiver in accordance with Section 13.10. Each written waiver shall apply only to the Default or Event of Default to which it is expressed to apply. No written waiver shall preclude the subsequent exercise by the Lenders or the Administrative Agent of any right, power or privilege hereunder or extend to or apply to any other Default or Event of Default.

11.7    Set-off

Each of the Administrative Agent and any Lender with whom the Borrower maintains any account or accounts shall enter into an agreement with the Trustee, in form and substance satisfactory to the Trustee, pursuant to which the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as applicable, confirms to the Trustee that:

(a)
in respect of any Funds and Accounts (as defined in the Trust Indenture) forming part of the Collateral (as defined in the Trust Indenture), the Trustee has a security interest in such

LEGAL_1 :28825770.9


-36-

Funds and Accounts and the cash on deposit therein are Permitted Investments forming part thereof;

(b)
the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as applicable, has and will have no security interest in any such Fund or Account or the cash on deposit therein or Permitted Investments forming part thereof; and

(c)
the only rights of set-off which may be exercised by the Administrative Agent or such Lender in respect of any such Fund or Account or the cash on deposit therein or Permitted Investments forming part thereof are those arising out of the operation of the relevant account unless the Administrative Agent or such Lender has agreed to remit all amounts so set-off to the Trustee to be dealt with in accordance with the Trust Indenture;

provided that none of the foregoing shall apply to rights of set-off exercised by the Administrative Agent in the ordinary course of the operation of the Administrative Agents' centralized cash management system with the Borrower.

Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default and a demand by the Administrative Agent for payment pursuant to Section 11.3, the Administrative Agent and each Lender is hereby authorized by the Borrower at any time and from time to time with notice to the Borrower to combine, consolidate and merge on behalf of the Trustee for the benefit of the Bondholders (as defined in the Trust Indenture) all or any of the Borrower's accounts with liabilities to the Administrative Agent or such Lender and to set-off, appropriate and apply on behalf of the Trustee for the benefit of such bondholders or to otherwise seize and remit to the Trustee any and all deposits by or for the benefit of the Borrower with any branch of the Administrative Agent or such Lender, general or special, matured or unrnatured, and any other indebtedness and liability of the Administrative Agent or such Lender to the Borrower, matured or unrnatured, against and on account of the indebtedness of the Borrower hereunder when due, notwithstanding that the balances of such accounts, deposits or indebtedness may or may not be expressed in the same currency.

ARTICLE 12
THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT AND THE LENDERS

12.1    Authorization of Administrative Agent and Relationship

Each Lender hereby appoints BNS as Administrative Agent and BNS hereby accepts such appointment. The appointment may only be terminated as expressly provided in this Agreement. Each Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to take all action on its behalf and to exercise such powers and perform such duties under this Agreement as are expressly delegated to the Administrative Agent by its terms, together with all powers reasonably incidental thereto. Except as expressly specified in this Agreement, the Administrative Agent shall have only those duties and responsibilities of a solely mechanical and administrative nature that are expressly delegated to the Administrative Agent by this Agreement or are reasonably incidental thereto. The Administrative Agent may perform such duties by or through its agents or employees, but shall not by reason of this Agreement have a fiduciary duty in respect of any Lender. As to any matters not expressly provided for by this Agreement, the Administrative Agent is not required to exercise any discretion or to take any action, but is required to act or to refrain from acting (and is fully protected in so acting or refraining from acting) upon the instructions of the Lenders or the Majority Lenders, as the case may be. Those instructions shall be binding upon all Lenders, but the Administrative Agent is not required to take any action which exposes the Administrative    Agent to personal liability or which is contrary to this Agreement or applicable law.


LEGAL_1 :28825770.9


-37-

12.2    Disclaimer of Administrative Agent

The Administrative Agent makes no representation or warranty, and assumes no responsibility with respect to the due execution, legality, validity, sufficiency, enforceability or collectability of this Agreement or any other Credit Document. The Administrative Agent assumes no responsibility for the financial condition of the Borrower, or for the performance of its obligations under this Agreement or any other Credit Document. The Administrative Agent assumes no responsibility with respect to the accuracy, authenticity, legality, validity, sufficiency or enforceability of any documents, papers, materials or other information furnished by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent on behalf of the Lenders. The Administrative Agent shall not be required to ascertain or inquire as to the performance or observance of any of the terms, conditions, provisions, covenants or agreements contained herein or as to the use of the proceeds of any credit hereunder or (unless the officers or employees of the Lender acting as Administrative Agent active in their capacity as officers or employees on the Borrower's accounts have actual knowledge thereof, or have been notified thereof in writing by the Borrower or a Lender) of the existence or possible existence of any Default or Event of Default. Neither the Administrative Agent nor any of its directors, officers, agents or employees shall be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it or them as Administrative Agent under or in connection with the Agreement, whether in the good faith exercise of any discretion expressly granted to the Administrative Agent or otherwise, except for actions or omissions arising from its or their own negligence or wilful misconduct. With respect to its Commitment, the Lender acting as Administrative Agent shall have the same rights and powers hereunder as any other Lender, and may exercise the same as though it were not performing the duties and functions delegated to it as Administrative Agent hereunder.

12.3    Failure of Lender to Fund

(a)
Unless the Administrative Agent has actual knowledge that a Lender has not made or will not make available to the Administrative Agent for value on a Borrowing Date the applicable amount required from such Lender pursuant to Article 2, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to assume that such amount has been or will be received from such Lender when so due and the Administrative Agent may (but shall not be obliged to), in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Borrower a corresponding amount. If such amount is not in fact received by the Administrative Agent from such Lender on such Borrowing Date and the Administrative Agent has made available a corresponding amount to the Borrower on such Borrowing Date as aforesaid, such Lender shall pay to the Administrative Agent on demand an amount equal to the product of (i) the rate per annum then in use at the Branch as a syndicate lender late payment rate, multiplied by (ii) the amount that should have been paid to the Administrative Agent by such Lender on such Borrowing Date and was not, multiplied by (iii) a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days that have elapsed from and including such Borrowing Date to but excluding the date on which the amount is received by the Administrative Agent from such Lender and the denominator of which is three hundred and sixty-five (365). A certificate of the Administrative Agent containing details of the amount owing by a Lender under this Section shall be binding and conclusive in the absence of manifest error. If any such amount is not in fact received by the Administrative Agent from such Lender on such Borrowing Date, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to recover from the Borrower, on demand, the related amount made available by the Administrative Agent to the Borrower as aforesaid together with interest thereon at the applicable rate per annum payable by the Borrower hereunder.

(b)
Notwithstanding the provisions of Subsection 12.3(a), if any Lender fails to make available to the Administrative Agent its Proportionate Share of any Advance (such Lender being herein called the "Defaulting Lender"), the Administrative Agent shall forthwith give notice of such failure by the Defaulting Lender to the other Lenders. The Administrative

LEGAL_1 :28825770.9


-38-

Agent shall then forthwith give notice to the other Lenders that any Lender may make available all or any portion of the Defaulting Lender's share of such Advance in the place of the Defaulting Lender, but in no way shall any other Lender or the Administrative Agent be obliged to do so. If more than one Lender gives notice that it is prepared to make funds available in the place of a Defaulting Lender in such circumstances and the aggregate of the funds which such Lenders (herein collectively called the "Contributing Lenders" and individually called the "Contributing Lender") are prepared to make available exceeds the amount of the Advance which the Defaulting Lender failed to make, then each Contributing Lender shall be deemed to have given notice that it is prepared to make available a portion of such Advance based on the Contributing Lenders' relative Proportionate Shares. If any Contributing Lender makes funds available in the place of a Defaulting Lender in such circumstances, then the Defaulting Lender shall pay to any Contributing Lender making the funds available in its place, forthwith on demand any amount advanced on its behalf together with interest thereon at the rate applicable to such Advance from the date of advance to the date of payment, against payment by the Contributing Lender making the funds available of all interest received in respect of the Advance from the Borrower. The failure of any Lender to make available to the Administrative Agent its Proportionate Share of any Advance as required herein shall not relieve any other Lender of its obligations to make available to the Administrative Agent its Proportionate Share of any Advance as required herein.

12.4    Replacement of Lenders

(a)
If any Lender defaults in its obligation to fund Loan hereunder, then the Borrower may, at its sole expense and effort, upon 10 days' prior notice to such Lender and the Administrative Agent, require such Lender to assign and delegate, without recourse, all of its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement and the related Credit Documents to an assignee that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be another Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment), provided that;

(i)
the Borrower pays the Administrative Agent an assignment fee specified in Section 12.4(b);

(ii)
the assigning Lender receives payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loan and accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it hereunder and under the other Credit Documents from the Assignee, defined below (to the extent of such outstanding principal and accrued interest and fees) or the Borrower (in the case of all other amounts); and

(iii)
such assignment does not conflict with Applicable Laws.

A Lender shall not be required to make any such assignment or delegation if, prior thereto, as a result of a waiver by such Lender or otherwise, the circumstances entitling the Borrower to require such assignment and delegation cease to apply.

(b)
Any Lender (herein sometimes called an "Assigning Lender") may, with the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent and unless an Event of Default has occurred, with the prior written consent of the Borrower, in each case not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed, assign all or any part of its rights to, and may have its obligations in respect of the Credit Facility assumed by, one or more financial institutions or other entities (each an "Assignee") in minimum amounts of Cdn.$10,000,000 and in Cdn.$5,000,000 increments.

LEGAL_1 :28825770.9


-39-

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, no Lender shall assign any portion of its Commitment (as set out on Schedule 5) if, after that assignment, the Assigning Lender's commitment would be less than Cdn.$10,000,000. An assignment shall become effective when the Borrower and the Administrative Agent have been notified of it by the Assigning Lender and have received from the parties to the assignment an executed assignment and assumption agreement (the "Lender Assignment Agreement"), in a form reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, and the Administrative Agent has received from the Assignee an assignment fee of a minimum of Three Thousand, Five Hundred Canadian Dollars (Cdn.$3,500) per Lender per assignment. From and after the effective date specified in the Lender Assignment Agreement, the Assignee thereunder shall be a party hereto and, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Lender Assignment Agreement, shall have the rights and obligations of a Lender under this Agreement to the same extent as if it were an original party in respect of the rights or obligations assigned to it, and the Assigning Lender shall be released and discharged accordingly and to the same extent, and such Schedules as applicable shall be amended accordingly from time to time without further notice or other requirement. Each partial assignment shall be made as an assignment of a proportionate part of all of the Assigning Lender's rights and obligations under this Agreement with respect to the Borrowing or the Commitment assigned.

12.5    Payments by the Borrower

Unless otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement as among the Lenders, all payments made by or on behalf of the Borrower pursuant to this Agreement shall be made to and received by the Administrative Agent and shall be distributed by the Agent to the Lenders as soon as possible upon receipt by the Administrative Agent. Subject to any other provision of this Agreement concerning the distribution of payments, the Administrative Agent shall cause distribution of:

(a)
payments of interest in accordance with each Lender's Advanced Share of the Advances to which the payment relates;

(b)
repayments of principal in accordance with each Lender's Advanced Share of the Advances to which the payment relates;

(c)
payments of standby fees in accordance with Section 4.3; and

(d)
all other payments including, without limitation, amounts received upon realization, in accordance with each Lender's Proportionate Share; provided, however, that with respect to proceeds of realization, no Lender shall receive an amount in excess of the amounts owing to it in respect of the Accommodations.

Subject to Section 12.6, if the Administrative Agent does not distribute a Lender's share of a payment made by the Borrower to that Lender for value on the day that payment is made or deemed to have been made to the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent shall pay to the Lender on demand an amount equal to the product of (i) the rate per annum then in use at the Branch as a syndicate lender late payment rate, multiplied by (ii) the Lender's share of the amount received by the Administrative Agent from the Borrower and not so distributed, multiplied by (iii) a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days that have elapsed from and including the date of receipt of the payment by the Administrative Agent to but excluding the date on which the payment is made by the Administrative Agent to such Lender and the denominator of which is three hundred and sixty-five (365).

12.6    Payments by Administrative Agent

LEGAL_1 :28825770.9


-40-


(a)
For greater certainty, the following provisions shall apply to any and all payments made by the Administrative Agent to the Lenders hereunder:

(i)
the Administrative Agent shall be under no obligation to make any payment (whether in respect of principal, interest, fees or otherwise) to any Lender until an amount in respect of such payment has been received by the Administrative Agent from the Borrower;

(ii)
if the Administrative Agent receives less than the full amount of any payment of principal, interest, fees or other amount owing by the Borrower under this Agreement, the Administrative Agent shall have no obligation to remit to each Lender any amount other than such Lender's share of that amount which is actually received by the Administrative Agent;

(iii)
if a Lender's share of an Advance has been advanced, or a Lender's Commitment has been outstanding, for less than the full period to which any payment (other than a payment of principal) by the Borrower relates, such Lender's entitlement to such payment shall be reduced in proportion to the length of time such Lender's share of the Advance or such Lender's Commitment, as the case may be, has actually been outstanding;

(iv)
the Administrative Agent acting reasonably and in good faith shall, after consultation with the Lenders in the case of any dispute, determine in all cases the amount of all payments to which each Lender is entitled and such determination shall, in the absence of manifest error, be binding and conclusive; and

(v)
upon request, the Administrative Agent shall deliver a statement detailing any of the payments to the Lenders referred to herein.

(b)
Unless the Administrative Agent has actual knowledge that the Borrower has not made or will not make a payment to the Administrative Agent for value on the date in respect of which the Borrower has notified the Administrative Agent that the payment will be made, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to assume that such payment has been or will be received from the Borrower when due and the Administrative Agent may (but shall not be obliged to), in reliance upon such assumption, pay the Lenders corresponding amounts. If the payment by the Borrower is in fact not received by the Administrative Agent on the required date and the Administrative Agent has made available corresponding amounts to the Lenders, the Borrower shall, without limiting its other obligations under this Agreement, indemnify the Administrative Agent against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, costs, expenses or disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever that may be imposed on or incurred by the Administrative Agent as a result. A certificate of the Administrative Agent with respect to any amount owing by the Borrower under this Section shall be prima facie evidence of the amount owing in the absence of manifest error. The Administrative Agent shall be entitled to recover from each Lender to which a payment is made in reliance on the expectation of payment from the Borrower in accordance with this Section, the full amount of such payment that is not recovered from the Borrower, together with interest at the rate per annum then in use at the Branch as a syndicate lender late payment rate, from the date on which payment is made by the Administrative Agent to the date on which repayment is made by the Lender receiving such payment.


LEGAL_1 :28825770.9


-41-

12.7    Direct Payments

The Lenders agree among themselves that, except as otherwise provided for in this Agreement, all sums received by a Lender relating to this Agreement whether received by voluntary payment, by the exercise of the right of set-off or compensation or by counterclaim, cross-action or otherwise, shall be shared by each Lender so that the ultimate exposure of each Lender is in accordance with its Advanced Share of all Advances under this Credit Facility, and each Lender undertakes to do all such things as may be reasonably required to give full effect to this Section, including without limitation, the purchase from other Lenders of their proportionate interest in the Borrowings by the Lender who has received an amount in excess of its Proportionate Share of amounts advanced under this Credit Facility as shall be necessary to cause such purchasing Lender to share the excess amount rateably with the other Lenders to the extent of their Advanced Share of any Advances under this Credit Facility. If any Lender shall obtain any payment of moneys due under this Agreement as referred to above, it shall forthwith remit such payment to the Administrative Agent and, upon receipt, the Administrative Agent shall distribute such payment in accordance with the provisions of Section 12.6.

12.8    Administration of the Credit Facility

(a)
Unless otherwise specified herein, the Administrative Agent shall perform the following duties under this Agreement:

(i)
prior to the first Borrowing, provided that the Administrative Agent has received confirmation from the Borrower (by way of the delivery of a Borrower's Certificate of Compliance), or the Borrower's counsel (if appropriate), that the conditions in Section 10.1 has been complied with, advise the Lenders that all conditions precedent have been fulfilled in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, subject to Subsection 12.9(b) and any other applicable terms of this Agreement;

(iv)
except as otherwise specifically provided for in this Agreement, promptly advise each Lender upon receipt of each notice and deliver to each Lender, promptly upon receipt, all other written communications furnished by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent on behalf of the Lenders pursuant to this Agreement, including without limitation copies of financial reports and certificates which are to be furnished to the Administrative Agent;

(v)

LEGAL_1 :28825770.9


-42-


(vi)
promptly forward to each Lender, upon request, an up-to-date loan status report; and

(vii)
upon learning of same, promptly advise each Lender in writing of the occurrence of an Event of Default or Default or the occurrence of any event, condition or circumstance which would have a Material Adverse Effect on the ability of the Borrower to comply with this Agreement or of the occurrence of any material adverse change on the business, operations or assets of the Borrower, taken as a whole, provided that, except as aforesaid, the Administrative Agent shall be under no duty or obligation whatsoever to provide any notice to the Lenders and further provided that each Lender hereby agrees to notify the Administrative Agent of any Event of Default or Default of which it may reasonably become aware.

(b)
The Administrative Agent may take the following actions only with the prior consent of the Majority Lenders, unless otherwise specified in this Agreement:

(i)
subject to Subsection 12.8(c), exercise any and all rights of approval conferred upon the Lenders by this Agreement;

(ii)

(c)
The Administrative Agent may take the following actions only if the prior unanimous consent of the Lenders is obtained, unless otherwise specified herein:

(i)
amend, modify, discharge, terminate or waive any of the terms of this Agreement if such amendment, modification, discharge, termination or waiver would amend the Canadian Dollar Amount of any Accommodation outstanding, reduce the interest rate applicable to any Accommodation, reduce the fees or other amounts payable with respect to any Accommodation, extend any date fixed for payment of principal, interest or other amounts relating to the Credit Facility or extend the Maturity Date of any Credit;

(ii)
amend the definition of"Majority Lenders" or this Subsection 12.8(c); and

(iii)

LEGAL_1 :28825770.9


-43-

opinion of the Administrative Agent, acting reasonably and in good faith, the exigencies of the situation warrant such action to protect the interests of the Lenders, the Administrative Agent may without notice to or consent of the Lenders take such action on behalf of the Lenders as the Administrative Agent deems appropriate or desirable.

(e)
As between the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders:


(i)
all statements, certificates, consents and other documents which the Administrative Agent purports to deliver on behalf of the Lenders or the Majority Lenders shall be binding on each of the Lenders, and the Borrower shall not be required to ascertain or confirm the authority of the Administrative Agent in delivering such documents;

(ii)
all certificates, statements, notices and other documents which are delivered by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent in accordance with this Agreement shall be deemed to have been duly delivered to each of the Lenders, except where this Agreement expressly requires delivery of notices of Advances and payments to the Administrative Agent and/or individual Lenders; and

(iii)
all payments which are delivered by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent in accordance with this Agreement shall be deemed to have been duly delivered to each of the Lenders.

(b)
The Administrative Agent shall be entitled to rely on any communication, instrument or document believed by it to be genuine and correct and to have been signed by the proper individual or individuals, and shall be entitled to rely and shall be protected in relying as to legal matters upon opinions of independent legal advisers selected by it. The Administrative Agent may also assume that any representation made by the Borrower is true and that no Event of Default or Default has occurred unless the officers or employees of the Administrative Agent have actual knowledge to the contrary or have received notice to the contrary from any other party to this Agreement.

(c)
The Administrative Agent may, without any liability to account, accept deposits from and lend money to and generally engage in any kind of banking or other business with the Borrower, as if it were not the Administrative Agent.

12.10    Acknowledgments, Representations and Covenants of Lenders

(a)
It is acknowledged and agreed by each Lender that it has itself been, and will continue to be, solely responsible for making its own independent appraisal of and investigations into the financial condition, creditworthiness, property, affairs, status and nature of the Borrower. Accordingly, each Lender confirms to the Administrative Agent that it has not relied, and will not hereafter rely, on the Administrative Agent (i) to check or inquire on its behalf into the adequacy or completeness of any information provided by the Borrower under or in connection with this Agreement or the transactions herein contemplated (whether or not such information has been or is hereafter distributed to such Lender by the Administrative Agent) or (ii) to assess or keep under review on its behalf the financial condition, creditworthiness, property, affairs, status or nature of the Borrower.

(b)
Each Lender represents and warrants to the Administrative Agent and the Borrower that it has the legal capacity to enter into this Agreement pursuant to its constating documents and any applicable legislation and has not violated its constating documents or any applicable legislation by so doing.

12.11    Collective Action of the Lenders

Each of the Lenders hereby acknowledges that to the extent permitted by applicable law, the remedies provided under the Credit Documents to the Lenders are for the benefit of the Lenders collectively and acting together and not severally and further acknowledges that its rights hereunder and under any security are to be exercised not severally, but by the Administrative Agent upon the decision of the Majority Lenders or Lenders as required by this Agreement.

If no Successor Administrative Agent has been so appointed and has accepted such appointment within twenty-one (21) days after the retiring Administrative Agent's giving of notice of resignation or receiving of notice of termination, then the retiring Administrative Agent may, on behalf of the Lenders, appoint a Successor Administrative Agent in accordance herewith. Upon the acceptance of any appointment as Administrative Agent hereunder by a Successor Administrative Agent, the retiring Administrative Agent shall pay the Successor Administrative Agent any unearned portion of any fee paid to the Administrative Agent for acting as such, and the Successor Administrative Agent shall succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Administrative Agent, and the retiring Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its further duties and obligations as Administrative Agent under this Agreement and the other Credit Documents. After any retiring Administrative Agent's resignation hereunder as Administrative Agent, the provisions of this Article shall continue to enure to its benefit and be binding upon it as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was Administrative Agent hereunder.
