The updates are intended to provide further particulars and clarifications with respect to certain matters contained in the Circular.

Executive Officer Compensation

On page 8 of the Circular, the Company stated that James C. Griffiths elected to serve as Interim President and Chief Executive Officer in 2015 without compensation. Mr. Griffiths has had a long-standing relationship with the Company serving as both an officer and director. As a result of the financial pressures which have been facing the Company, Mr. Griffiths opted to serve without compensation as a financial accommodation to the Company.

James D. Staudohar, the Company's current Interim President and Chief Executive Officer, and Debra L. Zarbock, the Company's Chief Financial Officer, are currently receiving the following compensation:

Mr. Staudohar agreed to receive an annual salary in the amount of USD$144,000 upon his appointment as Interim President and Chief Executive Officer on January 20, 2016. From June 2015 to December 31, 2015, Mr. Staudohar was paid consulting fees in the aggregate amount of USD$72,000.

Ms. Zarbock is currently compensated as an employee of the Company at the rate of USD$100 per hour and, as of April 30, 2016, has been paid USD$32,150. Prior to receiving her current employment compensation, Ms. Zarbock was paid consulting fees in the aggregate amount of USD$53,026 in 2015 and USD$16,046 in 2016.

The current compensation payable to the Interim President and Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer were negotiated and were not based on a comparison with any particular benchmark group of companies. The Company will consider using benchmark comparators in the determination of base salaries and incentive compensation of executive officers in the future.

Corporate Governance Disclosure

The board of directors of the Company has recently consisted of four directors. On March 17, 2016 the board appointed Cornelia H. V. Molson as a fifth director. The board believes that five directors is a sufficient number to ensure the board will be able to function effectively.

Ms. Molson received a B.A. and an MBA at Concordia University in Montreal, and has been a venture capitalist since 1973. In 1980 she founded Covan Corporate Consultants, providing planning and financial services to small-to-medium sized businesses. In 1989, she formed Covan Corporate Capital Inc. to manage a limited partnership formed to provide various forms of capital to emerging businesses. Ms. Molson has participated in a number of startup and early stage financial and technological companies in North America and Europe. She also serves on the board of directors of and acts as an advisor to numerous emerging companies and is a founder and director of a number of non-profit organizations.

At this time, while the Company has no formal procedures in place for identifying possible director and executive officer position, such matters, as well as matters as to continuing education for directors and the fostering of ethical business conduct are given due consideration at all times. As financial and personnel resources permit, the Company expects to be able to adopt more formal policies and procedures relating to the identification of possible directors and executive officers, continuing education for directors and the fostering of ethical business conduct.

In addition, the board has determined that board member Mark A. Young is not independent as the Company is paying fees to Mr. Young for certain financial advisory consulting services that he provides. Mr. Young is listed as an independent director on page 4 of the Circular in error.
