(1) (m) of the Income Tax Act, taxable amounts allocated to the unit holders
must be reported by the unit holders in their 2008 Income Tax Return.
    Accordingly, the taxable amount of cash distributions received from
January 1, 2008 up to and including December 31, 2008 is included in your "T3
Supplementary". The deadline for mailing all T3 Supplementary Information
slips as required by Revenue Canada is March 31, 2009.

    Adjusted Cost Base for Capital Gains

    Holders of trust units are required to reduce the Adjusted Cost Base
("ACB") of their units by an amount equal to the cumulative cash received from
cash distributions minus cumulative taxable amounts reported as "Other Income"
on their slips (if any).
    The Adjusted Cost Base is used in calculating capital gains or losses on
the disposition of the trust units if the trust units are held as a capital
property by the owner.
