Debt Settlement

The Debt Settlement constituted a "related party transaction" as defined in Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"), as an insider of the Company acquired 19,740,754 BC Shares. The Company relied on exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(b), 5.5(g) and 5.7(l)(e) of MI 61-101, as the Company is not listed on a specified market and the Company is in financial hardship. In connection with the foregoing, the independent directors of the Company determined that: (i) the Company is in serious financial difficulty; (ii) the Debt Settlement is designed to improve the financial position of the Company; and (iii) the terms of the Debt Settlement are reasonable in the circumstances of the Company. A discussion and description of the approval process adopted by the independent directors of the Company and other information required by MI 61-101 in connection with the Debt Settlement will be set forth in the Company's material change report to be filed under the Company's SEDAR profile.

In connection with the closing of the Transaction, effective immediately, Edward Yurkowski, Paul Champagne, and Brian Kynoch, have resigned as directors of the Company. Edward Yurkowski has also resigned as President, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer and Corporate Secretary of the Company.

The Company is pleased to announce that David D'Onofrio, Adam Parsons and Catherine Lathwell have been appointed to serve as directors of the Company, to fill the vacancies created by the foregoing resignations. In addition to his appointment as a director of the Company, David D'Onofrio has also been appointed Chief Executive Officer of the Company.
