Part 2 Comments on Definitions Contained in the instrument
Section 2.4.1

“designated rating” and “designated rating organization” –

The Canadian securities regulatory authorities recognize there are existing contracts that use the predecessor terms “approved credit rating”, “approved rating” and “approved credit rating organization”. The content of the new definitions “designated rating” and “designated rating organization” is substantially the same as the content of their respective predecessor terms, only the terminology has changed. Therefore, it is reasonable to interpret the predecessor terms as having the same meaning as the definition of “designated rating” and “designated rating organization” in the Instrument, as applicable.
