Environmental Industry Associations Honors Charles F. "Mickey" Flood, President and CEO, IESI, for Years of Association Service

FORT WORTH, TEXAS--(CCNMatthews - May 7, 2007) - IESI Corporation ("IESI"), a subsidiary of BFI Canada Income Fund ("the Fund"), and Environmental Industry Associations ("EIA") are pleased to announce that Charles F. "Mickey" Flood, President and CEO of IESI and President of the Fund, will be honored with a Special Trustee Award by the EIA on Tuesday, May 8, 2007.

EIA is the non-profit trade association that represents for-profit companies in the waste service and equipment industry throughout North America.

IESI is one of the leading non-hazardous solid waste management companies in the U.S. and provides collection, transfer, disposal and recycling services to 36 markets, serving more than 586,000 residential customers and 66,000 commercial and industrial customers, in nine states.

Mickey Flood's career in the solid waste industry spans over 35 years, including the founding of IESI in 1995. Prior to IESI, he served as one of 7 Group Presidents for Waste Management, Inc.; President, U.S. Operations for Laidlaw Waste Systems; President, North America for GSX Corp.; and Regional Vice President of SCA Services. He recently stepped down as the Chairman of EIA's Board of Trustees after a four-year term during which he enhanced the safety program, increased membership, helped start the New York City Chapter, and emphasized the importance of education and the industry's image.

"We are pleased to recognize Mickey for his service to the Association and the waste industry," said Bruce Parker, EIA's President and CEO. "He continues to show strong leadership as his company and the industry grow."

Flood said, "I knew how important the legislative process was to the growth of my company and the role of a trade association in the lobbying effort, so I became active. Perhaps my greatest contribution was ensuring that EIA's Board of Trustees operates for the good of the industry and all of the industry's employees."

The awards ceremony will take place in Atlanta, Georgia, as part of the waste industry's national trade show, Waste Expo 2007.
