11. The management information circular of the Applicant dated May 21, 2008, provided to all the Shareholders in connection with the Meeting, included a summary of the differences between the BCBCA and the OBCA and advised Shareholders of their dissent rights in connection with the Continuance pursuant to Section 185 of the OBCA.
12. The material rights, duties and obligations of a corporation governed by the BCBCA are substantially similar to those of a corporation governed by the OBCA.

b) the majority of the Applicant's directors are residents of British Columbia;
