Each Unitholder will receive a T3 supplementary slip for 2004 that will
indicate the amount of "Other Income" - Box 26 , "Dividends" - Box 23
and "Capital Gains" - Box 21 that are to be included in their tax
return. The dividends will be subject to the standard 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.
