K-Bro Linen Income Fund Supreme Court ruling on BC government's Bill 29


    EDMONTON, June 11 /CNW/ - K-Bro Linen Income Fund (the "Fund") reports
that The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that certain provisions of the
British Columbia government's Bill 29, the Health and Social Services Delivery
Improvement Act, are unconstitutional under freedom of association provisions
in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. However, the Court has
suspended its declaration for 12 months in order to allow the provincial
government sufficient time to address the Supreme Court's decision. The
government and the Fund's legal representatives are examining the decision,
and it is unclear what if any impact the ruling will have on K-Bro's existing
contracts. Management understands the B.C. government will release information
related to this decision and its impact early next week. K-Bro intends to
issue a further press release as soon as possible regarding these matters.
