Standard & Poor's Announces the S&P Canadian Bond Index Rebalancing Report for June 2007



    TORONTO, June 25 /CNW/ - Standard & Poor's has completed the monthly
rebalancing of the S&P Canadian Bond Index. According to index methodology,
the universe of Canadian bonds is exhaustively reviewed to reflect changes in
par amount and term to existing index constituents. Qualifying new issues are
added to the index and existing constituents that no longer meet the criteria
for inclusion are removed.
    A complete list of bond issues entering and leaving the S&P Canadian Bond
Index after the close of June 29, 2007, as a result of the review follows at
the end of this release.
    Additions to and deletions from the S&P Canadian Bond Index do not in any
way reflect an opinion on the investment merits of the issuers concerned.
