4. The Filer intends to apply to the Director under the OBCA for authorization to continue into Alberta as a corporation under the Business Corporations Act (Alberta) (ABCA) pursuant to section 181 of the OBCA (Application for Continuance).
5. The Filer's issued and outstanding common shares are posted and listed for trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "EE".

9. The Filer is not a party to any proceeding or, to the best of its knowledge, information and belief, pending proceeding under the Act.

12. The material rights, duties and obligations of a corporation governed by the ABCA are substantially similar to those of a corporation governed by the OBCA.
13. The Shareholders had the right to dissent from the proposed continuance under Section 185 of the OBCA, and the Information Circular disclosed full particulars of this right in accordance with applicable law. No shareholders elected to dissent.
14. The Filer's continuance as a corporation under the ABCA was approved at the annual and special meeting of shareholders held on July 31, 2007 with the approval of 99.97% of the shares voted on the proposal.
