"On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank the many shareholders who voted in person or by proxy at our annual meeting," said Mr. V. James Sardo, Chairman of the Board of Directors. "We appreciate the vote of confidence in the Board and management that they have shown by re-electing all directors."
"We believe a number of withhold votes are attributable to a non-discretionary voting policy implemented by an institutional shareholder, as was the case in 2014," continued Mr. Sardo. "This policy relates to diversity metrics that are outside of industry standards. The Board of Directors is committed to diversity and seeks candidates from diverse backgrounds with the objective of achieving and maintaining the best mix of skills and experience, including gender and other traits, to provide for overall stewardship of the company in accordance with Canadian regulatory requirements and best practices."
