Due to the current health pandemic and social distancing rules and measures applicable within the Province of British Columbia, the Company is discouraging shareholders from physically attending the meeting for the sole purpose of engaging with management and the Board and has set up an alternative measure for them do so. More specifically, the Company is also allowing shareholders to participate for informational purposes only to the meeting BY A WEBCAST DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC AND GOVERNMENT ORDERS TO MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING. NO VOTES WILL BE ACCEPTED AT THE WEBCAST MEETING and presence through the webcast medium will not, by itself without a proxy having been returned as described herein, be counted for the purposes of quorum or voting. IT IS therefore HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT SHAREHOLDERS WHO WISH TO ENSURE THAT THEIR COMMON SHARES WILL BE VOTED, MUST COMPLETE, DATE AND EXECUTE THE ENCLOSED FORM OF PROXY, OR ANOTHER SUITABLE FORM OF PROXY, AND DELIVER IT BY HAND, BY MAIL OR BY FAX IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE INSTRUCTIONS SET OUT IN THE FORM OF PROXY AND IN THE CIRCULAR. FOR GREATER CLARITY, PROXIES NEED TO BE RECEIVED BY THE COMPANY BEFORE THE PROXY-CUT OFF DATE OF 10:00 A.M., PST, ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2020 .
