2.Grant of Security Interest. The Grantor hereby pledges and grants to the Secured Party, and hereby creates a continuing First Priority security interest in favor of the Secured Party in and to all of its right, title and interest in and to the following, wherever located, whether now existing or hereafter from time to time arising or acquired (collectively, the “Collateral”):
all personal property of every kind and nature including but not limited to all accounts, goods (including inventory and equipment), documents of title, instruments, promissory notes, chattel paper, letters of credit, securities and all other investment property, intangibles, money, accounts, and any other contract rights or rights to the payment of money; and
all Proceeds and products of each of the foregoing, all books and records relating to the foregoing, all supporting obligations related thereto, and all accessions to, substitutions and replacements for, and rents, profits and products of, each of the foregoing, and any and all Proceeds of any insurance, indemnity, warranty or guaranty payable to the Grantor from time to time with respect to any of the foregoing.
Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything contained in this Agreement or any other Loan Document to the contrary, the term “Collateral” shall not include, and a security interest is not granted in, any right or interest in any permit, license, lease or contract if under the terms of such permit, license, lease or contract, or applicable Laws with respect thereto, the grant of a security interest or lien therein is prohibited and such prohibition or restriction has not been waived or the requisite consent in respect of such permit, license, lease or contract has not been obtained (or is not able to be obtained) or the grant of a security interest or lien therein would, under the terms of such permit, license, lease or contract, result in the voiding or termination of or give rise to a right of termination of such permit, license, lease or contract, provided that, such permit, license, lease or contract shall be included in the term “Collateral” and a security interest shall be granted therein, at such time as the grant of a security interest therein is no longer prohibited, or the requisite consent in respect thereof has been obtained.
The last day of any term reserved by any real property lease, written or unwritten, or any agreement to lease real property, now held or subsequently acquired by the Grantor is excepted out of the security interest granted hereunder. As further security for the payment of its Secured Obligations, the Grantor agrees that it will stand possessed of the reversion of such last day of the term and shall hold it in trust for the Secured Party for the purpose of this Agreement. The Grantor shall assign and dispose of the same in such manner as the Secured Party may from time to time direct in writing without cost or expense to the Secured Party. Upon any sale, assignment, sublease or other disposition of such lease or agreement to lease, the Secured Party shall, for the purpose of vesting the residue of any such term in any purchaser, sublessee or such other acquiror of the real property lease, agreement to lease or any interest in any of them, be entitled by deed or other written instrument to assign to such other person, the residue of any such term in place of the Grantor and to vest the residue freed and discharged from any obligation whatsoever respecting the same.
3.Secured Obligations; Attachment; Value.
(a)The Collateral secures the due and prompt payment and performance of all loans, advances, debts, covenants, duties, obligations and liabilities of any kind and description, owed by the Grantor under or in connection with the Notes, the Purchase Agreement, the Guaranty, and each of the other Loan Documents to which the Grantor is a party, in each case as amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, including all interest, fees,
charges, expenses, attorneys’ fees and costs and accountants’ fees and costs chargeable to and payable by the Grantor, in each case, whether direct or indirect, absolute or contingent, now existing or hereafter arising, due or to become due, and whether or not arising after the commencement of a proceeding under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (Canada) (including post-petition interest) and whether or not allowed or allowable as a claim in any such proceeding (collectively, the “Secured Obligations”).
(b)The security interest created hereby is intended to attach, in respect of Collateral in which the Grantor has rights at the time this Agreement is signed by the Grantor and delivered to the Secured Party, and, in respect of Collateral in which the Grantor subsequently acquires rights, at the time the Grantor subsequently acquires such rights. The Grantor and the Secured Party hereby acknowledge that (i) value has been given; (ii) the Grantor has rights in the Collateral in which it has granted a security interest; and (iii) this Agreement constitutes a security agreement as that term is defined in the PPSA.

(d)The Grantor agrees that at any time and from time to time, at the expense of such Grantor, such Grantor will promptly execute and deliver all further instruments and documents, obtain such agreements from third parties, and take all further action, that may be necessary or desirable, or that the Secured Party may reasonably request, in order to create and/or maintain the

(e)No authorization, approval, or other action by, and no notice to or filing with, any governmental authority or regulatory body is required for the pledge by the Grantor of the Collateral pursuant to this Agreement or for the execution and delivery of this Agreement by the Grantor or the performance by the Grantor of its obligations hereunder.
(f)The execution and delivery of this Agreement by the Grantor and the performance by the Grantor of its obligations hereunder, will not violate any provision of any applicable Laws or regulation or any order, judgment, writ, award or decree of any court, arbitrator or governmental authority, domestic or foreign, applicable to the Grantor or any of its property, or the organizational or governing documents of the Grantor or any agreement or instrument to which the Grantor is party or by which it or its property is bound.

(a)The Grantor will not, without providing at least 30 days’ prior written notice to the Secured Party, change its legal name, identity, type of organization, jurisdiction of organization, corporate structure, location of its chief executive office or its principal place of business or its organizational identification number.

8.Secured Party Appointed Attorney-in-Fact. The Grantor hereby appoints the Secured Party the Grantor’s attorney-in-fact, with full authority in the place and stead of the Grantor and in the name of the Grantor or otherwise, from time to time during the continuance of an Event of Default in the Secured Party’s discretion to take any action and to execute any instrument which the Secured Party may deem necessary or advisable to accomplish the purposes of this Agreement (but the Secured Party shall not be obligated to and shall have no liability to the Grantor or any third party for failure to do so or take action). This appointment, being coupled with an interest, shall be irrevocable. The Grantor hereby ratifies all that said attorneys shall lawfully do or cause to be done by virtue hereof.
9.Secured Party May Perform. If the Grantor fails to perform any obligation contained in this Agreement, the Secured Party may itself perform, or cause performance of, such obligation, and the expenses of the Secured Party incurred in connection therewith shall be payable by the Grantor; provided that the Secured Party shall not be required to perform or discharge any obligation of the Grantor.
10.Reasonable Care. The Secured Party shall have no duty with respect to the care and preservation of the Collateral beyond the exercise of reasonable care. The Secured Party shall be deemed to have exercised reasonable care in the custody and preservation of the Collateral in its possession if the Collateral is accorded treatment substantially equal to that which the Secured Party accords its own property, it being understood that the Secured Party shall not have any responsibility for (a) ascertaining or taking action with respect to any claims, the nature or sufficiency of any payment or performance by any party under or pursuant to any agreement relating to the Collateral or other matters relative to any Collateral, whether or not the Secured Party has or is deemed to have knowledge of such matters, or (b) taking any necessary steps to preserve rights against any parties with respect to any Collateral. Nothing set forth in this Agreement, nor the exercise by the Secured Party of any of the rights and remedies hereunder, shall relieve the Grantor from the performance of any obligation on the Grantor’s part to be performed or observed in respect of any of the Collateral.
11.Remedies Upon Default.
(a)If any Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, upon (a) receipt of written notice of Event of Default and at the direction of the Secured Party, the Grantor shall within forty-five (45) days of such notice commence a sale process (the “Sale Process”) with respect to Collateral with a value that is sufficient to satisfy the Obligations. The Secured Party shall have sixty (60) days after the commencement of the Sale Process to enter into a term sheet with respect to the disposition of the Collateral, and shall have sixty (60) days following the execution of such term sheet to enter into a transaction with respect
to the disposition of the Collateral providing proceeds sufficient to pay off the Secured Obligations in their entirety at such closing. If the Grantor fails to comply with the requirements of this Section 11(a) in running the Sale Process diligently and in good faith, then the Secured Party shall have the right to exercise any and all remedies it may have under applicable Laws.
(b)Subject to Section 11(a), if any Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, the Secured Party, without any other notice to or demand upon the Grantor, may assert all rights and remedies of a secured party under this Agreement, the PPSA or other applicable Laws, including, without limitation, the right to take possession of, hold, collect, sell, lease, deliver, grant options to purchase or otherwise retain, liquidate or dispose of all or any portion of the Collateral and the right to appoint a receiver or agent of all or any part of the Collateral and remove or replace from time to time any such receiver or agent. If notice prior to disposition of the Collateral or any portion thereof is necessary under applicable Laws, written notice mailed to the Grantor at its notice address as provided in Section 15 hereof 15 days (or such other number of days as may be required by applicable Law) prior to the date of such disposition shall constitute reasonable notice, but notice given in any other reasonable manner shall be sufficient. So long as the sale of the Collateral is made in a commercially reasonable manner, the Secured Party may sell such Collateral on such terms and to such purchaser(s) as the Secured Party in its absolute discretion may choose, without assuming any credit risk and without any obligation to advertise or give notice of any kind other than that necessary under applicable Laws. Without precluding any other methods of sale, the sale of the Collateral or any portion thereof shall have been made in a commercially reasonable manner if conducted in conformity with reasonable commercial practices of creditors disposing of similar property. The Grantor hereby waives and releases to the fullest extent permitted by Law any right or equity of redemption with respect to the Collateral, whether before or after sale hereunder, and all rights, if any, of marshalling the Collateral and any other security for the Secured Obligations or otherwise. At any such sale, unless prohibited by applicable Laws, the Secured Party or any custodian may bid for and purchase all or any part of the Collateral so sold free from any such right or equity of redemption. The Secured Party shall not be obligated to clean-up or otherwise prepare the Collateral for sale.
(c)Subject to Section 11(a), if any Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, any cash held by the Secured Party as Collateral and all cash Proceeds received by the Secured Party in respect of any sale of, collection from, or other realization upon all or any part of the Collateral shall be applied in whole or in part by the Secured Party to the payment of expenses incurred by the Secured Party in connection with the foregoing or incidental to the care or safekeeping of any of the Collateral or in any way relating to the Collateral or the rights of the Secured Party hereunder, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, and the balance of such proceeds shall be applied or set off against all or any part of the Secured Obligations in such order as the Secured Party shall elect. Any surplus of such cash or cash Proceeds held by the Secured Party and remaining after payment in full of all the Secured Obligations shall be paid over to the Grantor or to whomsoever may be lawfully entitled to receive such surplus. The Grantor shall remain liable for any deficiency if such cash and the cash Proceeds of any sale or other realization of the Collateral are insufficient to pay the Secured Obligations and the fees and other charges of any attorneys employed by the Secured Party to collect such deficiency.
12.No Waiver and Cumulative Remedies. The Secured Party shall not by any act (except by a written instrument pursuant to Section 14), delay, indulgence, omission or otherwise be deemed to have waived any right or remedy hereunder or to have acquiesced in any Event of Default. All rights and remedies herein provided are cumulative and are not exclusive of any rights or remedies provided by Law.
13.Security Interest Absolute. The Grantor hereby waives demand, notice, protest, notice of acceptance of this Agreement, notice of loans made, credit extended, Collateral received or delivered or other action taken in reliance hereon and all other demands and notices of any description. All rights of the Secured Party and liens and security interests hereunder, and all Secured Obligations of the Grantor hereunder, shall be absolute and unconditional irrespective of:
any illegality or lack of validity or enforceability of any Secured Obligation or any related agreement or instrument;
any change in the time, place or manner of payment of, or in any other term of, the Secured Obligations, or any rescission, waiver, amendment or other modification of the Purchase Agreement, the Guaranty, this Agreement or any other agreement, including any increase in the Secured Obligations resulting from any extension of additional credit or otherwise;
any taking, exchange, substitution, release, impairment or non-perfection of any Collateral or any other collateral, or any taking, release, impairment, amendment, waiver or other modification of any guaranty, for all or any of the Secured Obligations;
any manner of sale, disposition or application of proceeds of any Collateral or any other collateral or other assets to all or part of the Secured Obligations;
any default, failure or delay, wilful or otherwise, in the performance of the Secured Obligations;
any defense, set-off or counterclaim (other than a defense of payment or performance) that may at any time be available to, or be asserted by, the Grantor against the Secured Party; or
any other circumstance (including, without limitation, any statute of limitations) or manner of administering the Notes or any existence of or reliance on any representation by the Secured Party that might vary the risk of the Grantor or otherwise operate as a defense available to, or a legal or equitable discharge of, the Grantor or any other grantor, guarantor or surety.
14.Amendments. None of the terms or provisions of this Agreement may be amended, modified, supplemented, terminated or waived, and no consent to any departure by the Grantor therefrom shall be effective unless the same shall be in writing and signed by the Secured Party, and then such amendment, modification, supplement, waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which made or given.
15.Addresses For Notices. All notices and other communications provided for in this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be given in the manner and become effective as set forth in the Purchase Agreement, and addressed to the respective parties at their addresses as specified on the signature pages hereof or as to either party at such other address as shall be designated by such party in a written notice to each other party.
16.Continuing Security Interest; Further Actions. This Agreement shall create a continuing First Priority lien and security interest in the Collateral and shall (a) subject to Section 17, remain in full force and effect until payment and performance in full of the Secured Obligations, (b) be binding upon the Grantor, its successors and assigns, and (c) inure to the benefit of the Secured Party and its successors, transferees and assigns; provided that the Grantor may not assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the Secured Party.
17.Termination; Release. On the date on which all Secured Obligations have been paid and performed in full, the Secured Party will, at the request and sole expense of the Grantor, (a) duly assign, transfer and deliver to or at the direction of the Grantor (without recourse and without any representation or warranty) such of the Collateral as may then remain in the possession of the Secured Party, together with any monies at the time held by the Secured Party hereunder, and (b) execute and deliver to the Grantor a proper instrument or instruments acknowledging the satisfaction and termination of this Agreement.
18.Governing Law. This Agreement and all matters arising out of or relating to this Agreement, whether sounding in contract, tort, or statute, will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of British Columbia and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein.
19.Jurisdiction and Venue. ANY LEGAL SUIT, ACTION OR PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR BASED UPON THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY SHALL BE INSTITUTED IN THE COURTS OF THE PROVINCE OF BRITISH COLUMBIA, AND EACH PARTY IRREVOCABLY SUBMITS TO THE NON-EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION OF SUCH COURTS IN ANY SUCH SUIT, ACTION OR PROCEEDING. SERVICE OF PROCESS, SUMMONS, NOTICE OR OTHER DOCUMENT BY MAIL TO SUCH PARTY’S ADDRESS SET FORTH HEREIN SHALL BE EFFECTIVE SERVICE OF PROCESS FOR ANY SUIT, ACTION OR OTHER PROCEEDING BROUGHT IN ANY SUCH COURT. THE PARTIES IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVE ANY OBJECTION TO THE LAYING OF VENUE OF ANY SUIT, ACTION OR ANY PROCEEDING IN SUCH COURTS AND IRREVOCABLY WAIVE AND AGREE NOT TO PLEAD OR CLAIM IN ANY SUCH COURT THAT ANY SUCH SUIT, ACTION OR PROCEEDING BROUGHT IN ANY SUCH COURT HAS BEEN BROUGHT IN AN INCONVENIENT FORUM.
20.Waiver of Jury Trial. EACH PARTY HEREBY WAIVES ITS RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL OF ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION BASED UPON OR ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR THE SECURITIES OR THE SUBJECT MATTER HEREOF. THE SCOPE OF THIS WAIVER IS INTENDED TO BE ALL-ENCOMPASSING OF ANY AND ALL DISPUTES THAT MAY BE FILED IN ANY COURT AND THAT RELATE TO THE SUBJECT
MATTER OF THIS TRANSACTION, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, PURSUANT TO CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), BREACH OF DUTY, AND ALL OTHER COMMON LAW AND STATUTORY CLAIMS. THIS SECTION HAS BEEN FULLY DISCUSSED BY EACH OF THE PARTIES HERETO AND THESE PROVISIONS WILL NOT BE SUBJECT TO ANY EXCEPTIONS. EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY FURTHER REPRESENTS AND WARRANTS THAT SUCH PARTY HAS REVIEWED THIS WAIVER WITH ITS LEGAL COUNSEL, AND THAT SUCH PARTY KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY WAIVES ITS JURY TRIAL RIGHTS FOLLOWING CONSULTATION WITH LEGAL COUNSEL.
(a)If, for purposes of obtaining or enforcing a judgment in any court, it is necessary to convert into a particular currency (the “Judgment Currency”) an amount due under this Agreement in any other currency (the “Original Currency”), then conversion shall be made at the rate of exchange prevailing on the business day before the day on which final judgment is given (the “Conversion Date”). For purposes of this Section 21, “rate of exchange” means the rate at which the party to whom the judgment is granted (the “Judgment Creditor”) is able, on the Conversion Date, to purchase the Original Currency with the Judgment Currency in accordance with normal banking procedures in Toronto, Ontario.
(b)The obligations of the judgment debtor (the “Judgment Debtor”) in respect of any amount due in the Original Currency from it to the Judgment Creditor under the Agreement will, notwithstanding any judgment in the Judgment Currency, be discharged only to the extent that on the business day following receipt by the Judgment Creditor of any sum adjudged to be so due in the Judgment Currency, the Judgment Creditor may, in accordance with normal banking procedures, purchase the Original Currency with such Judgement Currency. If the amount of the Original Currency so purchased is less than the amount originally due to the Judgment Creditor in the Original Currency, the Judgment Debtor agrees, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding the judgment, to indemnify the Judgment Creditor against any loss arising as a result of such deficiency. In addition, the amount of the Original Currency so purchased exceeds the amount originally due to the Judgment Creditor in the Original Currency, the Judgment Creditor shall remit such excess to the Judgment Debtor. The indemnity in favour of the Judgment Creditor constitutes an obligation separate and independent from the other obligations contained in this Agreement, gives rise to a separate and independent cause of action, applies irrespective of any indulgence granted by the Judgment Creditor from time to time and continues in full force and effect notwithstanding any judgment or order for a liquidated sum in respect of an amount due under this Agreement or under any judgment or order.
22.Verification Statement. The Grantor hereby waives the requirement to be provided with a copy of any verification statement issued in respect of a financing statement or financing change statement filed under the PPSA in connection with this Agreement.
23.Counterparts. This Agreement and any amendments, waivers, consents or supplements hereto may be executed in counterparts (and by different parties hereto in different counterparts), each of which shall constitute an original, but all taken together shall constitute a single contract. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page to this Agreement by facsimile or in
electronic (i.e., “pdf” or “tif”) format shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Agreement.
