    TORONTO, April 24 /CNW/ - Standard & Poor's has completed the monthly
rebalancing of the S&P/TSX Canadian Bond Index. According to index

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/TSX Canadian
Bond Index after the close of April 30, 2007, as a result of the review
follows at the end of this release.
