7.4 The Licensee may deliver a written notice to the Owner cancelling this Agreement and thereafter the licence and the rights herein granted will terminate 180 days after the date of receipt by the Owner of such written notice.

ARTICLE 8 — NOTICE

8.1 Any notice required to be given by either party to the other will be deemed to be given if mailed by prepaid registered mail in Canada or delivered to the address of the other at the addresses specified for each on the first page of this licence, or at such other address as a party may, from time to time, direct in writing, and any such notice will be deemed to have been received if delivered, on the day of delivery, and if mailed, 7 days after the time of mailing, except in the case of mail interruption in which case actual receipt is required.

8.2 In order to expedite the delivery of any notice required to be given by either party to the other, a concurrent facsimile copy of any notice will, where possible, be provided to the other party but nothing in this section, and specifically the lack of delivery of a facsimile copy of any notice, will affect the deemed delivery provided in section 8.1.

8.3 The delivery of all money payable to the Owner under this Agreement will be effected by hand, courier or prepaid regular mail to the address specified above, or by any other payment procedure agreed to by the parties, such deliveries to be effective on actual receipt.

ARTICLE 9 — MISCELLANEOUS

9.1 No provision of this Agreement will be considered to have been waived unless the waiver is in writing, and a waiver of a breach of a provision of this Agreement will not be construed as or constitute a waiver of any further or other breach of the same or any other provision of this Agreement, and a consent or approval to any act requiring consent or approval will not waive or render unnecessary the requirement to obtain consent or approval to any subsequent same or similar act.

9.2 No remedy conferred upon or reserved to the Owner under this Agreement is exclusive of any other remedy in this Agreement or provided by law, but that remedy will be in addition to all other remedies in this Agreement or then existing at law, in equity or by statute.

9.3 This Agreement shall not entitle the Licensee to exclusive possession of the Land and the Owner may, for any purpose, grant to others interests in the Land or rights to enter on or use or occupy the Land, or may otherwise authorize other persons to enter on or use or occupy the Land, so long as the grant or authorization does not materially affect the exercise of the Licensee's rights hereunder. The question of whether a grant materially affects the exercise of the Licensee's rights hereunder shall be determined by the Owner acting reasonably. If the Owner, by written instrument, grants a licence, right or interest to others to use or occupy the Land, such grant will contain a provision identical to Subsection 3.1 (c) of this Agreement obligating the new grantee to keep the Land in a safe, clean and sanitary condition satisfactory to the Owner.

9.4 This Agreement extends to, is binding upon and enures to the benefit of the parties, their heirs, executors, administrators, successors and permitted assigns.

9.5 Time is of the essence in this Agreement.

9.6 In this licence, unless the context otherwise requires, the singular includes the plural and the masculine includes the feminine gender and the corporation.

9.7 The captions and headings contained in this licence are for convenience only and are not to be construed as defining or in any way limiting the scope or intent of the provisions herein.

9.8 If any section of this licence or any part of a section is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that part or section, as the case may be, shall be considered separate and severable and the remaining parts and sections of the licence shall not be affected thereby and shall be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.

The parties have executed this Agreement as of the date of reference of this Agreement.
