Global Diversified Investment Grade Income Trust - Default in respect of General Motors Corporation

    MONTREAL, June 3 /CNW Telbec/ - Global Diversified Investment Grade
Income Trust ("Global DIGIT") (TSX: DG.UN) announces that further to a filing
on June 1, 2009 by General Motors Corporation for relief under Chapter 11 of
the United States Bankruptcy Code, a bankruptcy credit event (default) has
occurred in respect of General Motors Corporation. This reference obligation
is included in four of the five portfolios to which Global DIGIT is exposed
and represents 1% of each such portfolio.
