    Non-GAAP Measures
    -----------------
    EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure, not recognized by GAAP and does not have a
standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP. Therefore, EBITDA may not be
comparable to similar measures presented by other users. EBITDA should not be
construed as an alternative to net earnings determined in accordance with GAAP
as an indicator of the Fund's performance or to cash flows from operating,
investing and financing activities as a measure of liquidity and cash flows.
The calculation of EBITDA is shown in the MD&A of the Fund for the three month
and nine month periods ended September 30, 2007 released today on the Fund's
website and filed with SEDAR.
