Each Unitholder will receive a T3 supplementary slip for 2006 that will indicate the amount of "Other Income" - Box 26 ,"Eligible Dividends" - Box 49 "Non-Eligible Dividends - Box 23, "Capital Gains" - Box 21 and "Return of Capital" - Box 42 that are to be included in their tax return. The dividends will be subject to the gross-up and federal dividend tax credit rules. The T3 supplementary slips are prepared by Computershare Trust Company of Canada and/or investment dealers. Unitholders are advised to contact their investment dealer directly if they do not receive their T3 supplementary slip.

The return of capital to the Unitholder is a non-taxable amount and will reduce the Adjusted Cost Base of the Unitholder's Units.

If the Units were held within a RRSP, DPSP, or RRIF, then no T3 slip will be received and no amount would be required to be reported on the Unitholder's personal tax return.
