the Corporation satisfying certain customary filing and other requirements.
    "We are very pleased of this conditional approval. It is a very important

visibility and trading liquidity for our shares. We wish, moreover, to express
our thanks to the TSX Venture Exchange and to its personnel with whom we made
our first steps," indicated André Leroux, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

the officers and directors of the Corporation to TSX satisfaction. The
