Summary of Clearly Canadian Special General Meeting

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 27, 2006) - CLEARLY CANADIAN BEVERAGE CORPORATION (OTCBB:CCBEF) held its special general meeting of shareholders on March 16, 2005 in Vancouver, Canada. The Company is pleased to report that both of the resolutions put forth at the meeting were favorably passed by a substantial majority of the disinterested shareholders who voted at the meeting. In that respect, the Company will create a new class of preferred shares of unlimited number to be designated in the Articles of the Company as Variable Multiple Voting Shares. In conjunction with the creation of the new class of preferred shares, the common shares of the Company will be re-designated in the Articles of the Company as Limited Voting Shares.

The Company's purpose in creating the new preferred shares is to provide an incentive to the Company's majority shareholder, BG Capital Group Ltd. ("BG"), to now convert its Class B preferred shares of the Company into eight million common shares, which BG has agreed to do. This is substantially fewer than the number of common shares BG would have been entitled to receive upon conversion of its Class B preferred shares at a later date.

As consideration for receiving fewer common shares than it would have been entitled to, the Company will issue to BG such number of the new preferred shares as will, at the conversion date, give to BG a number of votes equal to 50 per cent of the then issued and outstanding common shares of the Company (as adjusted to account for the conversion shares).
