inclusion, as additional security under the mortgages, charges or 
hypothecs, of any other assets not of a class authorized by sections 
5.51 to 5.91 as investments does not render the bonds, debentures 
or other evidences of indebtedness ineligible as an investment.
(4)  No investment may be made under section 5.51(e), (h) or (i) 
that would, at the time of making the investment, cause the 
aggregate market value of the investments made under those 
clauses to exceed 35% of the market value at that time of the 
whole trust estate.
(5)  No sale or other liquidation of any investment made under 
section 5.51(e), (h) or (i) is required solely because of any change 
in the ratio between the market value of those investments and the 
market value of the whole trust estate.

than 30% of the total issue of shares of any corporation may be 
purchased for any trust.

value of the common shares held for any particular trust fund to 
exceed 15% of the market value of that trust fund at that time.
(8)  No sale or other liquidation of common shares is required 
under this section solely because of any change in the ratio 
between the market value of those shares and the market value of 
the whole trust fund.

deposit it for a time that is reasonable in the circumstances

5.71(1)  Except in the case of a security that cannot be registered, 
a trustee who invests in securities shall require the securities to be 
registered in the trustee's name as the trustee for the particular trust 
for which the securities are held, and the securities may be 
transferred only on the books of the corporation in the trustee's 
name as trustee for that trust estate.

corporation.
Variation of investments 
5.8(1)  A trustee in the trustee's discretion may
	(a)	call in any trust funds invested in securities other than

and
	(b)	vary any investments authorized by sections 5.51 to 
5.91.
(2)  No trustee is liable for a breach of trust by reason only of the 
trustee's continuing to hold an investment that since its acquisition 
by the trustee has ceased to be one authorized by sections 5.51 to 
5.91.
(3)  When a trustee has improperly advanced trust money on a 
mortgage that would, at the time of the investment, have been a 
proper investment in all respects for a lesser sum than was actually 
advanced, the security is deemed to be an authorized investment 
for that lesser sum and the trustee is liable to make good only the 
amount advanced in excess of the lesser amount with interest.
Concurrence by trustee in corporate schemes 
5.9(1)  When a trustee holds securities of a corporation in which 
the trustee has properly invested money in accordance with 
sections 5.51 to 5.91, the trustee may concur in any compromise, 
scheme or arrangement

undertaking of the corporation to another corporation,

privileges or liabilities attached to the securities or any 
of them, or

	(i)	all or a majority of the shares, stock, bonds, 
debentures and other securities of the corporation, 
or of any class of them, are to be exchanged for 
shares, stock, bonds, debentures or other securities 
of another corporation, and
	(ii)	the trustee is to accept the shares, stock, bonds, 
debentures or other securities of the other 
corporation allotted to the trustee pursuant to the 
compromise, scheme or arrangement,
in like manner as if the trustee were entitled to the securities 
beneficially and may, if the securities are in all other respects 
reasonable and proper investments, accept any securities of any 
denomination or description of the reconstructed or purchasing or 
new corporation instead of or in exchange for all or any of the 
original securities.
(2)  A trustee is not responsible for any loss occasioned by any act 
or thing done in good faith under subsection (1) and the trustee 
may, if the securities accepted under subsection (1) are in all other 
respects reasonable and proper investments, retain them for any

	(d)	by inserting the following after Appendix A 
note A-9.33.6.14.:
A-9.37.  Secondary Suites
A secondary suite is only permitted where approved 
by the local authority, in accordance with municipal 
land use bylaws.
A-9.37.2.10.(1)  Gypsum Wallboard
To minimize the passage of smoke, it is expected that 
all gypsum board joints are properly finished, i.e. 
taped and mudded.  It is also expected that all service 
penetrations, i.e. pipes, cables and ducts, are tightly 
fitted or sealed with an appropriate gypsum board 
finishing compound.
A-9.37.2.14.(1)  Independent Heating and Ventilation 
System
The intent of Sentence 9.37.2.14.(1) is to ensure that 
each dwelling unit has an independent ductwork 
system where the building is heated and ventilated by 
a forced-air furnace.  If the heating system does not 
include ductwork, i.e. hydronics, fancoils, electric 
baseboards, etc., it would be anticipated that each 
dwelling unit would have its own control system for 
the heating system.  It is not expected that 
homeowners would be required to install a second 
boiler and piping system in the case of a radiant floor 
heating system.  It would be necessary, however, to 
ensure that each dwelling unit would have its own 
independent ventilation system.
