Section 4.04 - Payment of Tenant's Proportionate Share
Prior to the commencement of the Term and the commencement of each Lease Year, the Landlord shall notify the Tenant of its estimate of the Tenant's Proportionate Share of Operating Costs and Taxes for the next ensuing Lease Year. The Tenant shall pay such estimated amount in equal monthly instalments in advance on the first day of each month during the Lease Year. From time to time during a Lease Year the Landlord may re-estimate the amount of the Tenant's Proportionate Share of Operating Costs and Taxes and shall fix monthly instalments for the then remaining balance of the Lease Year so that the Tenant's Proportionate Share of Operating Costs and Taxes will have been entirely paid during the Lease Year or before the due date for payment of any such Operating Costs or Taxes. When the necessary information becomes available, the Landlord shall make a final determination of the Tenant's Proportionate Share of Operating Costs and Taxes for each Lease Year, which shall be binding upon both Parties, and shall provide the Tenant with a statement of the Operating Costs and Taxes for the relevant Lease Year. The Landlord and the Tenant shall expeditiously make any necessary re-adjusting payments provided that the Tenant may not claim a re-adjustment based solely upon any error of estimation, determination or calculation unless claimed in writing within one (l) year after the Lease Year to which the claim relates.
Whenever, in the Landlord’s opinion, any component of Operating Costs or Taxes relate to only a portion of the Development and the Premises are located within such portion, or to the extent that any component of Operating Costs or Taxes should be attributed or allocated, in the opinion of the Landlord, to the Tenant or to any other tenant or group of tenants, the Landlord may (but shall not be obligated to) attribute or allocate the cost of such component of Operating Costs or Taxes to the Tenant or calculated in relation to the Rentable Area of such portion of the Development alone. In making any such allocation or attribution the Landlord may have regard to such criteria it determines are relevant, including without limitation amongst other things, the various uses of the premises so leased; the location of such individual premises so leased and the probable or apparent use made of various portions of the Development by specific tenants, their contractors, agents, employees, licensees, concessionaires, subtenants, customers and invitees.
Whenever the Landlord performs work or supplies services pursuant to this Lease, or causes the same to be performed or supplied, which is or are the responsibility of the Tenant, or for which expense the Tenant is responsible, the Tenant shall pay to the Landlord upon demand, as Additional Rent, in addition to the amount otherwise payable to the Landlord in respect thereof Pursuant to this Lease, an Administrative Charge on all costs, fees and expenses incurred by the Landlord in connection therewith.
Section 4.05 - Accrual of Rent
Rent shall be considered as accruing from day to day hereunder and where it becomes necessary for any reason to calculate such Rent for an irregular period of less than one (1) year or less than one (l) calendar month, an appropriate apportionment and adjustment shall be made. If the Term commences on any day other than the first day of a month, Rent for such fraction of a month shall be adjusted, as aforesaid, and paid by the Tenant on the commencement date of the Term.
Section 4.06 - Currency and Place of Payment
All Rent hereunder shall be payable in lawful money of Canada and shall be paid to the Landlord at the Landlord's address for notices as provided in Section 18.01 or to such person at such address as the Landlord may from time to time direct by notice to the Tenant.
Section 4.07 - Additional Rent Treated As Rent
All Additional Rent whether in the nature of rent or not shall be deemed to be and be treated as Rent and payable and recoverable as Rent, but in the manner as herein provided, and the Landlord shall have all rights against the Tenant for default in any such payment as in the case of arrears of Rent.
The Tenant shall pay to the Landlord Goods and Services Tax in accordance with the applicable legislation at the same time as the amounts to which such goods and services tax apply are payable to the Landlord under the terms of this Lease or upon demand at such other time or times as the Landlord from time to time determines. Notwithstanding any other section of this Lease, the amount payable by the Tenant under this clause shall be deemed not to be Rent, but the Landlord shall have the same remedies for and rights of recovery of such amount as it has for recovery of Rent under this Lease.
Section 4.08 - Interest on Amounts in Default
If the Tenant fails to pay when due any amount of Rent, the unpaid amount will bear interest calculated and payable monthly from the due date to the date of payment at the rate per annum which is five percent (P+5%) above the prime rate from time to time charged by the Landlord's chartered bank for loans in Canadian dollars to its most credit-worthy commercial customers. In addition, the Tenant will pay an administration fee of $25 to the Landlord for any late payment, except in the case of a Tenant’s cheque returned by the bank marked “insufficient funds”, in which case the administration fee shall be $50.

The Landlord shall not be responsible for the failure of the heating, ventilating and air conditioning equipment and systems to perform their function if this is attributable to any arrangement of partitioning in the Leased Premises or failure to shade windows which are exposed to the sun, or any use of electrical power by the Tenant which, in the Landlord's opinion, is excessive; and provided further that the Landlord shall not be liable for direct, indirect or consequential damages or damages for personal discomfort or illness of the Tenant, its servants, employees, invitees, clients or customers by reason of the operation or non-operation of such equipment or systems, nor shall there be repayment or reduction of the Rent during any such non-operation.

If the Tenant shall be in breach of these provisions the Tenant shall be responsible for all consequences flowing therefrom and shall indemnify the Landlord in respect thereof and if the rate of insurance is substantially increased or if the coverage of such insurance is substantially decreased, or such insurance is cancelled as a result thereof, at the option of the Landlord, the Term shall immediately terminate upon written notice to that effect to the Tenant.

| ||(C) ||portions of the Development which affect access or services essential to the Leased Premises are damaged or destroyed by any cause such that, in the reasonable opinion of the Landlord or the Tenant, as the case may be, such damage cannot with reasonable diligence be repaired within one hundred and eighty (180) days after the occurrence thereof, then the Landlord or the Tenant may at its option, exercisable by notice to the other party given within ninety (90) days of the occurrence of such damage or destruction, terminate this Lease, in which event the Tenant shall forthwith deliver up possession of the Leased Premises to the Landlord and Rent shall be apportioned and paid to the date upon which possession is so delivered up (but subject to any abatement to which the Tenant may be entitled under Section 9.05(i);|

The Tenant shall not permit any part of the Leased Premises to be used or occupied by any person other than the Tenant and its employees and any subtenant or assignee permitted under Section 11.02 and the employees of such subtenant or assignee, nor shall it permit any persons to be upon the Leased Premises other than the Tenant, such permitted subtenant or assignee and their respective employees, customers and others having lawful business with them. Without restricting the generality of the foregoing, the Tenant acknowledges that the entirety of this Article 11 shall apply fully, even if the Tenants permitted use or business to be carried on in the Leased Premises is the business of subletting or licensing of office space and facilities.
Section 11.02 - Assignment or Subletting
If at any time or from time to time, the Tenant wishes to assign this Lease or to sublet the whole or any part of the Leased Premises to any person other than a subsidiary or affiliate of the Tenant, the Tenant in each instance shall first offer to surrender this Lease in respect of the whole or any part of the Leased Premises (the “Subject Area”) which the Tenant wishes so to assign or sublet. Notice of such offer to surrender shall be given to the Landlord not less than ninety (90) days prior to the date on which the Tenant proposes that the surrender be effective. The Landlord shall have a period of ten (10) Business Days after such notice is given to accept or to decline such offer (the “Landlord’s Consideration Period”). If the Landlord accepts, then this Lease shall terminate with respect to the Subject Area on the date proposed in such offer. If the Landlord declines such offer or does not respond within the aforesaid time period, the Tenant may seek the Landlord’s consent to assign this Lease or sublet the Subject Area provided that the Tenant shall have:
| ||(i) ||received or procured a bona fide written offer (the “Offer”) to take an assignment or sublease of the Subject Area which is not inconsistent with, and the acceptance of which would not breach, any provision of this Lease (if this Section 11.02 is complied with) and which the Tenant has determined to accept subject to this Section 11.02 being complied with;|
| ||(ii) ||delivered to the Landlord an executed copy of the Offer no later than ninety (90) days after expiry of the Landlord’s Consideration Period; and|
| ||(iii) ||requested and obtained the written consent of the Landlord to such assignment or sublease.|
If the Tenant fails to satisfy any of the conditions set out in this Section 11.02 or if the Landlord does not consent to any such assignment of this Lease or sublease of the Subject Area, the Tenant shall be required to comply with the obligations of the Tenant set out in this Section 11.02 in each instance when, from time to time, the Tenant wishes to assign this Lease or sublet the whole or part of the Leased Premises.
Notwithstanding any other part of this Section 11.02, the Tenant shall not be required to obtain the Landlord’s consent to any assignment or sublease of the Leased Premises to a subsidiary or affiliate of the Tenant provided that the Tenant remains bound by the terms of this Lease. Should the Tenant wish to assign this Lease to a subsidiary or affiliate of the Tenant, and should the Tenant wish to no longer be bound by the terms of this Lease, the Tenant must first obtain the Landlord’s consent, which consent the Landlord may not unreasonably withhold, delay or condition. In no event shall the assignment or subleasing or an attempted assignment or sublease by the Tenant to a subsidiary or affiliate of the Tenant entitle the Landlord to terminate this Lease or any part of the Leased Premises.
Any request for the Landlord's consent shall be accompanied by a true copy of such offer and all information available to the Tenant, or any additional information requested by the Landlord, as to the responsibility, reputation, financial standing and business of the proposed assignee or subtenant. The consent of the Landlord shall not be unreasonably withheld provided that, without limitation, the Landlord shall not be deemed to be unreasonably withholding its consent if it refuses such consent upon the basis that
| ||(A) ||such offer provides for a rental which is less than the rental payable under this Lease, or|
| ||(B) ||such offer is made by, or the proposed assignment is in favour of, any existing tenant of the Development.|
If such consent is given the Tenant shall assign or sublet, as the case may be, only upon the terms set out in the offer submitted to the Landlord. The Landlord may require as a condition of its consent that the proposed assignee or subtenant agree with the Landlord to observe and to perform all the obligations of the Tenant under this Lease and the Tenant agrees with the Landlord that:
| ||(iv) ||in the case of an assignment, if the Tenant is to receive from any assignee, either directly or indirectly, any consideration or premium for the assignment of the Lease, either in the form of cash, goods or services, the Tenant shall forthwith pay an amount equal to such consideration to the Landlord; and|
| ||(v) ||if the Tenant sublets the Subject Area and receives a rental, consideration or premium in the form of cash, goods, services or other consideration from the subtenant which is higher than the rental payable under this Lease (on a per square foot basis) to the Landlord for the Subject Area, the Tenant shall pay any such excess to the Landlord in addition all rentals and other costs payable hereunder.|
In the case of any sublease, any consent of the Landlord will also be conditional upon the sub-tenant agreeing in writing with the Landlord that if the sub-tenant for any reason comes to stand in the same position with the Landlord as though it were a direct tenant from Landlord, then the sub-tenant shall pay to the Landlord all amounts that were outstanding and owing to the Landlord under the terms of the head Lease immediately prior to the assignment or disclaimer and the sub-tenant shall pay to the Landlord as rent for the sub-leased premises rent at the rate and in the amounts which had been payable by the Tenant to the Landlord under the terms of the head Lease and shall agree in writing to be bound to the Landlord by all of the obligations of the Tenant under the head Lease, the term of the sub-tenant's demise shall end on the last day of the term of the sub-lease , and the sub-tenant shall not have the benefit of any renewal or extension or other ancillary rights or benefits contained in the head Lease. The foregoing obligation shall apply notwithstanding that the premises demised to the sub-tenant are smaller than the premises demised under the head Lease.
Whether or not the Landlord consents to any request as aforesaid, the Tenant shall pay to the Landlord all reasonable costs incurred by the Landlord, including legal fees, in considering any consent and in completing any of the documentation involved in implementing any such assignment or sublease. Any advertisement of the Leased Premises or a portion thereof as being available for assignment, sublease or otherwise without the written approval of the Landlord to the form and content of such advertisement is prohibited, which approval shall be granted by the Landlord in its sole discretion.
Section 11.03 - Change in Control
If after the date of execution of this Lease: (i) the Tenant or any permitted assignee is not a “public company” as that term is defined in the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia): and (ii) there is a change in control (as defined below) either of the Tenant or of an Eligible Corporation which controls the Tenant or if other steps are taken to accomplish a change of control the Tenant shall promptly notify the Landlord of the change, which will be considered to be an assignment of this Lease to which Section 11.02 applies; if the Tenant does not notify the Landlord, the Landlord may terminate this Lease within sixty (60) days after the Landlord learns of the change in control. If the Tenant or any permitted assignee is not a “public company” as that term is defined in the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia), he Tenant shall make available to the Landlord or its lawful representatives for inspection at all reasonable times, all relevant books and records of the Tenant and of any Eligible Corporation which controls the Tenant to enable the Landlord to ascertain whether there has been a change of control. For the purpose of this Section 11.03 "change in control" means, in the case of any corporation or partnership, the transfer by sale, assignment, amalgamation, transmission on death, trust, operation of law or otherwise of any shares, voting rights or interest which may result in a change of identity of the person or persons exercising, or who might exercise, effective control of such corporation or partnership.

ALTERATIONS AND ADDITIONS
Section 15.01 - Landlord's Alterations, etc.
The Landlord, at any time after the day that is two years after this Lease commenced, and from time to time and without compensation to the Tenant, may make;
| ||(i) ||alterations or additions to, or change the location of, any part or parts, of any areas and any buildings, structures, facilities and other improvements from time to time on the Lands, other than the Leased Premises, and|
| ||(ii) ||alterations or additions to, or change the location of, the Leased Premises or any facilities in the Leased Premises; if|
| ||(A) ||the Rentable Area of the Leased Premises is not substantially reduced or substantially increased; and|
| ||(B) ||the Landlord makes the alterations or additions to the Leased Premises or change of location of the Leased Premises at its expense, completes the finishing or fixturing of Leased Premises to the standard existing before the alterations, additions or change of location and pays the Tenant's costs of moving and other reasonable direct costs incurred by the Tenant.|
Without limiting the foregoing, the Landlord shall have the right, at any time after the day that is two years after this Lease commenced, upon giving the Tenant written notice at least 30 days in advance, to provide the Tenant with other space (“Other Space”) in the Development (whether or not any part of the Leased Premises forms part thereof) of approximately the same size as the Leased Premises (but not more than 3% smaller than the size of the Leased Premises originally demised to the Tenant hereunder) improved to a standard and using materials of approximately the same quality as the improvements which exist in the Leased Premises at the time of relocation and the Tenant agrees to move to the Other Space. The Landlord shall arrange for and pay the costs associated with moving the Tenant to the Other Space, and effective at the date the business of the Tenant in the Leased Premises is required by the Landlord to close to facilitate the move (the “Closing Date”) the Tenant will surrender the Leased Premises and this Lease will be deemed to be amended by the substitution for the current Schedule A of a plan prepared by the Landlord which shows the Other Space cross-hatched and, if the Rentable Area of the Other Space is different than the Rentable Area of the now current Leased Premises, by the substitution in this Lease for the revised Rentable Area for the Other Space where necessary, and by the calculation of amounts of Rent calculated using the Rentable Area of the Other Space (provided that the Tenant shall not be required to pay rent for more than 103% of the number of square feet originally demised to the Tenant hereunder); and the parties agree to execute an agreement prepared by the Landlord which formally provides for such amendments to this Lease and all references in this Lease to the Leased Premises shall thenceforth be deemed to refer to the Other Space and this Lease, amended as aforesaid, will continue in full force and effect as a lease of the new space, for the balance of the Term. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall the Other Space have windows facing any road or alleyway save and except for Hastings Street and/or Howe Street and the Other Space shall have a comparable floor plan to the Leased Premises.
Section 15.02 - Tenant's Alterations
| ||(i) ||The Tenant shall not make, erect, or install any partitions (including moveable partitions), leasehold improvements, alterations or fixtures (including trade fixtures) in or about the Leased Premises without the prior written consent of the Landlord. All such work shall be performed in accordance with any reasonable conditions, regulations or design criteria set out by the Landlord and shall be completed in a good and workman like manner, in accordance with the description of the work approved by the Landlord, all applicable laws and the requirements of all governmental authorities. The Tenant shall, at the time of its application for such consent, furnish the Landlord with such plans, specifications and designs in such detail as the Landlord may require. The Landlord shall have the right to supervise any work done and to select or approve (at its option) the contractors and workmen to be employed by the Tenant. Any workmen performing the work shall have labour union affiliations compatible with others employed by the Landlord and its contractors. If the work proposed by the Tenant may affect the structure of the Leased Premises or any part of the Development or any of the electrical, mechanical or base building systems of the Development, the Landlord may elect that it be performed either by the Landlord or its contractors, in which case the Tenant shall pay to the Landlord as Additional Rent the costs of the Landlord relating to such work, including any consultants' fees plus an Administrative Charge. If the Tenant performs any work without complying with the provisions of this Section and does not remove it upon notice, the Landlord shall have the right to do so and to restore the Leased Premises to their previous condition, in which case the Tenant shall pay to the Landlord as Additional Rent the costs of such work and a supervisory fee which is reasonable in all circumstances plus an Administrative Charge. All partitions, leasehold improvements, alterations or fixtures made, erected or installed in the Leased Premises, whether made pursuant to this Section 15.02 or otherwise, shall become the property of the Landlord upon installation or affixation subject to the rights and obligations of the Tenant respecting removal thereof as provided in this Section.|
| ||(ii) ||The Landlord may, by notice to the Tenant, require the removal prior to the end of the Term (on a floor-by-floor basis), at the expense of the Tenant, of all partitions, leasehold improvements, alterations or fixtures and the restoration of the Leased Premises to the same condition that they were in prior to their making, erection or installation, such work to be done by or at the direction of the Landlord, as aforesaid.|
| ||(iii) ||Subject to Subsection 15.02 (ii), upon the expiration or other termination of this Lease, all partitions, leasehold improvements, alterations or fixtures made, erected or installed by the Tenant (or a predecessor of the Tenant) upon the Leased Premises (including carpeting and light fixtures) shall remain upon and be surrendered with the Leased Premises as a part thereof and any trade fixtures not removed by the Tenant shall be and become the property of the Landlord, absolutely provided that if the Tenant has paid the Rent and performed the covenants and conditions herein contained, it shall, at the end of the Term, have the right to remove its trade fixtures but shall make good the damage caused to the Leased Premises by their installation or removal; if the Tenant fails to do so the Landlord shall have the right to perform such work, in which case the Tenant shall pay the Landlord as Additional Rent the costs of such work plus an Administrative Charge.|
| ||(iv) ||No trade fixtures, furniture or equipment shall be removed by the Tenant from the Leased Premises during Term except that the Tenant may remove its furniture and equipment in the usual and normal course of its business, if excess for its purposes, or if it is substituting new furniture and equipment.|
Section 15.03 - Liens
The Tenant shall comply with all the provisions of the Builders Lien Act and other statutes from time to time applicable to any work done or improvements made to the Leased Premises by or on behalf of the Tenant (including any provisions requiring or enabling holdbacks) and shall take all steps necessary to ensure that no lien shall attach to the Leased Premises or any part of the Development. If any lien arises the Tenant shall immediately cause it to be discharged and any registration thereof vacated, and if such lien shall not have been discharged and the registration thereof vacated within a period of two (2) days after the Landlord gives the Tenant notice requiring it to do so, the Landlord shall be entitled to make such payment or take such action as may be necessary or expedient to discharge such lien and the registration thereof. The Tenant shall, forthwith on demand and as Additional Rent, indemnify and reimburse the Landlord for any payment, cost or expense (including legal fees) incurred by the Landlord in taking any action permitted under this Section.

| ||(iii) ||the Tenant or any agent of the Tenant falsifies any report required to be furnished to the Landlord pursuant to this Lease; or|
| ||(iv) ||the Tenant or any indemnifier of this Lease or any person occupying the Leased Premises or any part thereof becomes bankrupt or insolvent or takes benefit of any act now or hereinafter in force for bankrupt or insolvent debtors or files any proposal or makes any assignment for the benefit of creditors or any arrangement or compromise; or|
| ||(v) ||a receiver or a receiver and manager is appointed for all or a portion of the Tenant's property or any such indemnifier's, or occupant's property; or|

| ||(viii) ||the Tenant abandons or attempts to abandon the Leased Premises, or sells or disposes of the goods and chattels of the Tenant or removes them from the Leased Premises so that there would not in the event of such sale or disposal be sufficient goods of the Tenant on the Leased Premises subject to distress to satisfy all Rent due or accruing hereunder for a period of at least twelve (12) months; or|
| ||(ix) ||the Leased Premises become and remain vacant for a period of five (5) consecutive days or are used by any persons other than such as are entitled to use them hereunder; or|
| ||(x) ||the Tenant assigns, transfers, encumbers, sublets or permits the occupation or use or the parting with or sharing possession of all or any part of the Leased Premises by anyone except in a manner permitted by this Lease; or|
| ||(xi) ||this Lease or any of the Tenant's assets are taken under any writ of execution; or|
| ||(xii) ||re-entry is permitted under any other terms of this Lease,|
then and in every such case the Landlord, in addition to any other rights or remedies it has pursuant to this Lease or by law, has the immediate right of re-entry upon the Leased Premises and it may repossess the Leased Premises and enjoy them as of its former estate, and it may expel all persons and remove all property from the Leased Premises, and such property may be removed and sold or disposed of by the Landlord as it deems advisable or may be stored in a public warehouse or elsewhere at the cost and for the account of the Tenant, all without service of notice or resort to legal process and without the Landlord being considered guilty of trespass or becoming liable for any loss or damage which may be occasioned thereby.
Section 16.03 - Bankruptcy of Tenant
If the Term or a substantial portion of the goods and chattels of the Tenant on the Leased Premises at any time during the Term are seized or taken in execution or attachment by a creditor of the Tenant, or if the Tenant makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors or if a receiver-manager is appointed to control the conduct of the business on or from the Leased Premises, or if the Tenant becomes bankrupt or insolvent or takes the benefit of a statute now or hereafter in force for bankrupt or insolvent debtors, or if an order is made for the winding-up of the Tenant, or if the Leased Premises, without the written consent of the Landlord, become and remain vacant or abandoned for a period of fifteen (15) days or are used by any other persons than those entitled to use them under the terms of this Lease, the next ensuing three (3) months' Rent immediately will become due and payable as accelerated rent and the Landlord may re-enter and take possession of the Leased Premises as provided herein, and this Lease, at the option of the Landlord exercisable by written notice to the Tenant, forthwith will become forfeited and determined. In every one of the cases above mentioned the accelerated rent will be recoverable by the Landlord in the same manner as the Rent hereby reserved and as if Rent were in arrears.
The Tenant acknowledges and agrees that under no circumstances will it file any notice of termination seeking to take advantage of the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (Canada) as amended from time to time or other laws for the benefit of insolvent debtors and now waives any and all rights to do so. The Tenant agrees that if, in breach of this paragraph, it files such a notice, the Landlord may, in addition to all its other remedies, produce and rely on this paragraph in challenging the validity of the notice in the court proceedings contemplated by Section 65.2 of the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act or such laws and the Landlord may in those or any other proceedings apply for injunctive or other relief against the Tenant filing the notice.
Section 16.04 - Right to Terminate
If and whenever the Landlord becomes entitled to re-enter the Leased Premises under any provision of this Lease, the Landlord, in addition to all other rights and remedies, shall have the right to terminate this Lease forthwith by leaving upon the Leased Premises notice in writing of such termination. If such notice is given, pursuant to this or any other provision of this Lease, this Lease and the Term shall terminate. Basic Rent and any other payments for which the Tenant is liable under this Lease shall be computed, apportioned and paid in full to the date of such termination, and the Tenant shall immediately deliver up possession of the Leased Premises to the Landlord.
Section 16.05 - Right to Re-Let
If the Landlord re-enters pursuant to the provisions of either this Lease or any applicable law, it may either terminate this Lease or it may from time to time without terminating the Tenant's obligations under this Lease, make any alterations and repairs considered by the Landlord necessary to facilitate a re-letting, and re-let the Leased Premises or any part thereof as agent of the Tenant for such term or terms and at such rental or rentals and upon such other terms and conditions as the Landlord, in its reasonable discretion, considers advisable. Upon each re-letting, all Rent and other monies received by the Landlord from the re-letting will be applied:
| ||(i) ||to the payment of indebtedness other than Rent due hereunder from the Tenant to the Landlord;|
| ||(ii) ||to the payment of costs and expenses of the re-letting including brokerage fees and legal fees and costs of the alterations and repairs; and|
| ||(iii) ||to the payment of Rent due and unpaid hereunder.|
The residue, if any, will be held by the Landlord and applied in payment of future Rent as it becomes due and payable. If the rent received from the re-letting during a month is less than the Rent to be paid during that month by the Tenant, the Tenant shall pay the deficiency to the Landlord. The deficiency will be calculated and paid monthly. No re-entry by the Landlord will be construed as an election on its part to terminate this Lease unless a written notice of that intention is given to the Tenant. Despite a re-letting without termination, the Landlord may elect at any time to terminate this Lease for a previous breach. If the Landlord terminates this Lease for any breach, in addition to other remedies it may have, it may recover from the Tenant all damages it incurs by reason of the breach, including the cost of recovering the Leased Premises, reasonable legal fees and the worth at the time of termination of the excess, if any, of the amount of Rent and charges equivalent to rent reserved in this Lease for the remainder of the Term, over the then reasonable rental value of the Leased Premises for the remainder of the Term, all of which amounts shall be immediately due and payable by the Tenant to the Landlord.
Section 16.06 - Remedies Cumulative
The Landlord may from time to time resort to any or all of the rights and remedies available to it in the event of any default hereunder by the Tenant, either by any provision of this Lease or by statute or the general law, all of which rights and remedies are intended to be cumulative and not alternative, and the express provisions hereunder as to certain rights and remedies are not to be interpreted as excluding any other or additional rights and remedies available to the Landlord by statute or the general law.
Section 16.07 - Waiver of Exemption from Distress
The Tenant hereby agrees with the Landlord that notwithstanding anything contained in the Rent Distress Act (British Columbia) or the Commercial Tenancy Act (British Columbia) or any other Statute subsequently passed to take the place of or amend these said Acts, none of the goods and chattels of the Tenant at any time during the continuance of the Term hereby created on the Leased Premises shall be exempt from levy by distress for Rent in arrears by the Landlord as provided for by any Section or Sections of the said Acts or any amendments thereto, and that if any claim is made for such exemption by the Tenant or if a distress is made by the Landlord, this covenant and agreement may be pleaded as an estoppel against the Tenant in any action brought to test the right to the levying upon any such goods as are named as exempted in any Sections of the said Acts or any amendments thereto; the Tenant waiving, as it hereby does, all and every benefit that could or might have accrued to the Tenant under and by virtue of any Sections of the said Acts, or any amendments thereto but for this covenant.
Section 16.08 - Removal of Chattels

No such entry shall constitute an eviction or breach of the Landlord's covenant for quiet enjoyment or entitle the Tenant to any abatement in Rent.
Section 17.04 - Notice to Landlord
The Tenant shall promptly notify the Landlord in writing of:
| ||1. ||the existence of any Contaminants in, on or under the Leased Premises or Development or any part thereof, except as expressly approved by the Landlord in writing pursuant to this Article;|

On termination of this Lease, the Tenant shall leave the Leased Premises and Development free from any and all Contaminants brought onto or created on the Leased Premises or Development by the Tenant or its employees, agents, contractors, subtenants, licensees or invitees or resulting from the use or occupation of the Leased Premises or Development hereunder or the exercise of the Tenant's rights hereunder.
Section 17.06 - Ownership of Contaminants
If the Tenant shall bring or create upon the Leased Premises or Development any Contaminants then, notwithstanding any rule of law to the contrary, such Contaminants shall be and remain the sole and exclusive property of the Tenant and shall not become the property of the Landlord, notwithstanding the degree of affixation of the Contaminants or the goods containing the Contaminants to the Leased Premises or Development and notwithstanding the expiry or earlier termination of this Lease. This Section supersedes any other provision of this Lease to the contrary.
Section 17.07 - Indemnity
