English language, subject to the covenants contained in this Section 8. The Borrowers hereby agree to
cause their counsel, Norton Rose Fulbright Canada LLP, to deliver within 30 days of the date of this

version of this Agreement, other than the type of discrepancy referred to in the above paragraph but
including for greater certainty any discrepancy which affects the interpretation of the Agreement as
between one or more of the Bridge Lenders and Computershare, on one hand, and one or more of the
