The parties have reached a tentative settlement of this action. In furtherance of the proposed settlement, the parties attended before the Superior Court of Justice for Ontario on October 27, 2009, and obtained an order amending the class definition in this proceeding, such that the Class now includes deferred vested members of the Plan as well as all former members of the Plan between December 31, 2005 and the present.
New class members will have until December 7, 2009, to opt out of this proceeding.
A settlement approval hearing in this matter will proceed before the Court on December 11, 2009
