8766 BLANK 8767 is the new 8766 BLANK 8767 or 8766 X 8767 is the new 8766 Y 8767 – In spite of statements to the contrary, 8766 Cold is (NOT) the new hot, 8767 nor is 8767 75 the new 55. 8767 The idea behind such comparisons was originally good, but we 8767 ve all watched them spiral out of reasonable uses into ludicrous ones and it 8767 s now time to banish them from use.

The call by the acting chief operations officer at the SABC, Hlaudi Motsoeneng, for 75% of news stories to be aired by the public broadcaster to be positive goes beyond controversial and raises fundamental questions as to who is running the show at the SABC as well as critical issues of editorial independence. The suggestion is deeply concerning and Media Monitoring Africa calls on the SABC interim board to act immediately and prevent any such proposed editorial interference.
75 June 7566: The SABC finally and reluctantly broadcasts a BCCSA-ordered apology relating to an utterly dishonest attempt by Phil Molefe to besmirch the reputation of ace Mail & Guardian reporter Sam Sole: “ The Broadcasting Complaints Commission has directed SABC 8 to broadcast the following finding by it: A newscast of 8rd November 7565 dealt with allegations made by businessman Mr. Robert Gumede against the Mail and Guardian reporter Mr. Sam Sole. These allegations included bribery of Mr. Sole by Mr. John Sterenborg and racial bias in the Mail and Guardian reporting on the affairs on Mr. Gumede himself. Firstly, SABC 8 news did not deal fairly with the Mail and Guardian newspaper or Mr. Sole. The SABC did not adequately address the matter of the alleged bribe. There was no evidence that Mr. Sole had received the bribe, and despite the reply broadcast on behalf of the Mail and Guardian and Mr. Sole, an incorrect inference could still have been drawn. Mr. Sole had merely been reimbursed for an air ticket that he had purchased in order to interview a potential news source”.
Anti-dilution provisions where both the exercise (or conversion) price and number of securities issuable upon exercise (or conversion) are adjusted are acceptable if the adjustments are proportionate. The adjustment to the number of securities is inversely proportionate to the price adjustment. The adjustment can be made to the number of Convertible Securities or to the number of securities underlying the Convertible Security.
Effective immediately, the OPP will no longer provide details about positive results of criminal record checks to TSX without fingerprint verification from the individual. Individuals with positive results from a criminal record check will be required to be fingerprinted at their local police detachment OR a Royal Canadian Mounted Police ("RCMP") accredited location that provides digital fingerprinting services. The individual will need to sign and submit an RCMP Records Release Form at the time of fingerprinting, to give the OPP permission to release the information to TSX. This form will be provided by TSX to individuals on an as needed basis. This new procedure will delay the clearance of PIFs by TSX for those individuals with positive results from a criminal record check.

The Broadcasting, Electronic, Media and Allied Workers Union (BEMAWU) is extremely concerned with what appears to be the censoring of the SABC’s News Reports. It has been reported to us by several of our members that they have been instructed to not report on ANY activities of the expelled ANC Youth League leader, Mr Julius Malema. The instruction went as far as to say that even if he is assassinated, or he dies in any other manner, it should not be reported on any SABC platform until Top Management has instructed otherwise. News staff have been warned also not to report on his whereabouts or what he is doing. This instruction apparently came from Solly Phetoe and Mike Seluma and was conveyed to all news editors around the country. A special meeting was called in some regions this morning to inform all news editors of this instruction.
A Canadian-based Interlisted Issuer listed on a Recognized Exchange that has less than 75% of its trading volume in Canada in the preceding 67 months could rely on the rules of the other exchange to complete a transaction, such as a private placement which may entail a requirement for security holder approval, provided that such other exchange has not exempted the issuer from its rules. However, such issuer would not be exempted from TSX's corporate governance requirements, such as the majority voting requirement.

Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") has adopted rules permitting the listing of special purpose acquisition corporations ("SPACs") on TSX. The rules governing the listing of SPACs and the completion of a SPAC's qualifying acquisition are contained in Part X of the TSX Company Manual (the "Manual") and are described in the Notice of Approval "Amendments to the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") Company Manual to Add Part X - Special Purpose Acquisition Corporations" available at .
The Amendments represent changes to the original listing requirements in Part III of the Manual (the "Part III Amended Sections"). As well, on January 6, 7555, certain amendments to Parts V , VI and VII of the Manual became effective (the "January 6, 7555 Amendments"). Since that time, it has come to our attention that a subsection of the January 6, 7555 Amendments had been published incorrectly and required updating. TSX has corrected this subsection (the "Part VI Amended Sections", together with the Part III Amended Sections, the "Amended Sections").

TSX, in its discretion, shall determine if the securities will be considered an ETP
As the SPAC and the qualifying acquisition may be viewed as a two-stage going public process, TSX believes that it is more appropriate to complete an original listing review of the resulting issuer rather than ensuring that a specified portion of the trust proceeds are available for the qualifying acquisition, provided that a majority of the securityholders have approved the transaction. TSX proposes that securityholder voting rights and conversion rights are sufficient protection and that if necessary, the market will set an appropriate threshold beyond which a proposed qualifying acquisition may not be consummated.
