As Marc Charlebois did not receive the requisite majority of votes at the REIT's Annual and Special Meeting of Unitholders, per the REIT's Majority Voting Policy, he tendered his resignation to the Board of Trustees. In accordance with the Majority Voting Policy, the resignation was referred to the Board's Governance and Compensation Committee (the "GCC") for consideration and to make a recommendation to the Board as to whether to accept Mr. Charlebois' resignation.

The GCC carefully considered all relevant factors, including Mr. Charlebois' significant past contributions to the Board, his valuable independent real estate expertise and the integral role he is playing in stewarding the ongoing strategic review process, and made a recommendation to the Board to reject the resignation. The Board considered the GCC's recommendation, along with other relevant factors including numerous expressions of support from unitholders for Mr. Charlebois to continue as a Trustee, and determined to reject Mr. Charlebois' resignation. The Board of Trustees is focussed on moving the REIT forward and maximizing unitholder value. Mr. Charlebois ably represents unitholder interests in regards to these objectives.
