The initial management information circular dated April 20, 2021 was listing Messrs. Guy Chamberland, Dale Norton and Carl Merton as well as Ms. Dale Weil as director nominees for the ensuing year. Following such date, management continued its efforts to identify suitable director candidates in order to increase its board membership, resulting in the nominations of John Kim and Catherine Auld as directors of the Corporation. In addition, on May 18, 2021, Mr. Carl Merton announced that he would not be seeking reelection as a director at this meeting of the shareholders.
The proposal to appoint McGovern Hurley LLP as auditor of the Company and to authorize the board of directors of the Company to fix the remuneration to be paid to the auditor, as presented in the Circular, was approved by a majority of shareholders at the Meeting.
The ordinary resolution of the shareholders of the Company approving the amended and restated omnibus equity incentive compensation plan of the Company (the "Amended and Restated Omnibus Plan") (having the effect of amending and restated the current 2020 omnibus equity incentive plan of the Company) and approving the unallocated awards thereunder, the whole for a period of three (3) years and as more particularly described in the Circular, was adopted by a majority of shareholders at the Meeting. The Amended and Restated Omnibus Plan provides for a revised amending provision and reflects other amendments of a "housekeeping" nature in order to make the Company's equity incentive compensation plan compliant with the TSX Company Manual.
