The Indenture also contains provisions permitting the Holders of specified percentages in aggregate principal amount of the Securities at the time Outstanding, on behalf of the Holders of all the Securities affected thereby, to waive compliance by the Corporation with certain provisions of the Indenture and certain past defaults under the Indenture and their consequences. Any such consent or waiver by or on behalf of the Holder of this Security shall be conclusive and binding upon such Holder and upon all future Holders of this Security and of any Security issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange herefor or in lieu hereof whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Security.

The Securities are issuable only in registered form without coupons in denominations of US$2,000 and any integral multiple of $1,000 in excess thereof. As provided in the Indenture and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, the Securities are exchangeable for a like aggregate principal amount of Securities of a different authorized denomination, as requested by the Holder surrendering the same.
No service charge shall be made for any registration of transfer or exchange of Securities, but the Corporation may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge payable in connection therewith.
Prior to the time of due presentment of this Security for registration of transfer, the Corporation, the Trustee and any agent of the Corporation or the Trustees may treat the Person in whose name this Security is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, whether or not this Security be overdue, and neither the Corporation, the Trustee nor any agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.
Interest on this Security shall be computed on the basis of a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months.
For the purposes only of the disclosure required by the Interest Act (Canada), and without affecting the amount of interest payable to any holder of a Security or the calculation of interest on any Security, if the rate of interest on any Security is calculated on the basis of a year which contains fewer days than the actual number of days in the calendar year of calculation, such rate of interest shall be expressed as a yearly rate for the purposes of the Interest Act (Canada) by multiplying such rate of interest by the actual number of days in the calendar year of calculation and dividing it by the number of days in the deemed year.
As provided for in the Indenture, the Corporation may, from time to time, without notice or consent of the Holders, create and issue additional Securities so that such additional Securities shall be consolidated and form a single series with the Securities initially issued by the Corporation and shall have the same terms as to status, redemption or otherwise as the Securities originally issued.
If at any time, (i) the Depositary notifies the Corporation that it is unwilling or unable or no longer qualifies to continue as Depositary or if at any time the Depositary shall no longer be registered or in good standing under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or other applicable statute or regulation and a successor depositary is not appointed by the Corporation within 90 days after the Corporation receives such notice or becomes aware of such condition, as the case may be, or (ii) the Corporation determines that the Securities shall no longer be represented by a global Security or Securities, then in such event the Corporation will execute and the Trustee will authenticate and deliver Securities in definitive registered form, in authorized denominations, and in an aggregate principal amount equal to the principal amount of this Security in exchange for this Security. Such Securities in definitive registered form shall be registered in such names and issued in such authorized denominations as the Depositary, pursuant to instructions from its direct or indirect participants or otherwise, shall instruct the Trustee. The Trustee shall deliver such Securities to the Persons in whose names such Securities are so registered.
The Indenture and this Security shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York.
All terms used in this Security which are defined in the Indenture shall have the meanings assigned to them in the Indenture.
