The information provided under the heading “Directors and Officers” identifying the Company’s Audit Committee and confirming the independence of the Audit Committee, contained in the Annual Information Form, is incorporated by reference herein.

SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT CORPORATE GOVERNANCE DIFFERENCES

We are a “foreign private issuer” (as such term is defined in Rule 3b–4 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”)), and our subordinate voting shares are listed on the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”). The NYSE Listing Rules include certain accommodations in the corporate governance requirements that allow foreign private issuers, such as us, to follow “home country” corporate governance practices in lieu of the otherwise applicable corporate governance standards of the NYSE. Accordingly, we may follow certain corporate governance practices of our “home country”, Canada, in lieu of certain of the corporate governance requirements of the NYSE. The application of such exceptions requires that we disclose any significant ways that our corporate governance practices differ from the NYSE Listing Rules that we do not follow, if any.

Although we currently follow the corporate governance requirements of the NYSE and do not avail ourselves of the exemptions afforded to foreign private issuers under the NYSE Listing Rules, to the extent permitted, we may in the future decide to follow Canadian corporate governance practices instead of some or nearly all of the NYSE’s requirements. Following our “home country” governance practices may provide less protection than is accorded to investors under the NYSE Listing Rules applicable to domestic U.S. issuers. If in the future we decide to follow our “home country” governance practices, we intend to make available a comparison of NYSE Corporate Governance Rules required to be followed by domestic U.S. issuers and our corporate governance either in our annual report or on our website, as required by the NYSE Listing Rules.
