On April 3, 2009, the TSX released proposed amendments to its Company Manual with respect to requiring security holder approval "in those instances where the number of securities issued or issuable in payment of the purchase price for an acquisition exceeds ... 50% of the number of securities of the listed issuer which are outstanding, on a non-diluted basis, for an acquisition of a reporting issuer (or equivalent status) having 50 or more beneficial security holders, excluding insiders and employees."

The TSX is accepting comments on the amendments until May 4, 2009.
