(i) Elected by the Class "A" shareholders 
(ii) Elected by the Class "B" shareholders 
It is important to note that the abstention rate obtained by
candidate A. Michel Lavigne as a Class "B" director is explained by
an instruction given by a proxy advisor to its clients to show their
disapproval by abstaining from voting for candidates who have been
members of the Corporation's Compensation Committee, particularly due
to the fact that the Corporation has not adopted an advisory voting
policy on senior executive compensation. Therefore, this abstention
rate cannot be interpreted as a value judgment on this candidate's
skill. Since the Corporation has not yet adopted a majority voting
policy, Mr. A. Michel Lavigne was duly elected under corporate law
and will sit on the Corporation's Board of Directors.  
In addition, following their election, the Board of Directors has
appointed The Right Honourable Brian Mulroney as Chairman of the
Board, and Mr. Pierre Laurin as Vice-Chairman of the Board and Lead
Director.
