This news release may contain forward-looking statements relating to expected future events and financial and operating results of the Trust that involve risks and uncertainties.

Notes:

(1) As discussed in the Management's Discussion and Analysis, EBITDA and distributable cash are not earnings measures recognized by GAAP and do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP. References to "EBITDA" are to net earnings before interest expense, income taxes, amortization, impairment charges, unit based compensation and non-controlling interest and references to "distributable cash" are to cash available for distribution to Unitholders in accordance with the distribution policies of the Trust. Management believes that, in addition to net earnings, EBITDA is a useful supplemental measure of both performance and cash available for distribution before debt service, changes in working capital, capital expenditures and income taxes. Distributable cash is a measure generally used by income trusts as an indicator of financial performance and is a useful supplemental measure that may assist prospective investors in assessing an investment in the Trust. Management has calculated distributable cash as cash flow from operations less purchases of capital property and equipment.

The full quarterly report including the unaudited interim consolidated financial statements with accompanying notes and Management's Discussion and Analysis will be filed on SEDAR.
