Pembina Pipeline Income Fund first interim report for the three months ended March 31, 2006

PEMBINA DELIVERS SOLID OPERATING RESULTS FOR THE FIRST QUARTER OF 2006

    -   Pembina achieved record quarterly revenue and net operating income in
        the first quarter of 2006. Revenue of $81.5 million and net operating
        income of $51.9 million were up 17 percent and 16 percent,
        respectively, from the same periods in 2005.

    -   The Fund distributed $0.2850 per Trust Unit during the first quarter
        ($0.0950 per month) for total cash distributions of $33.6 million.
        Per Unit distributions increased 9 percent over the first quarter
        2005 level.

    -   During the quarter, Pembina delivered increasing throughputs on its
        conventional pipelines. These pipelines transported an average of
        454,300 barrels per day during the first quarter of 2006, an increase
        of 3 percent over the previous quarter and 2 percent over the same
        quarter of 2005.

    -   Pembina recently announced that it has entered into a Development
        Support Agreement with a syndicate of shippers for a proposed project
        which would involve transporting 100,000 barrels per day of imported
        condensate from Kitimat, British Columbia for delivery to Pembina's
        Western system near Prince George, British Columbia. The condensate
        would then be transported to market on Pembina's network of
        provincial and interprovincial pipelines.

    -   The $300 million Horizon Pipeline is proceeding as expected, with
        formal agreements nearing execution and construction expected to
        commence later this year. Pembina recently placed an order for
        $50 million of pipe in anticipation of commencing construction on
        this project.

    Management's Discussion and Analysis

This Management's Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) is dated April 26, 2006 and is supplementary to, and should be read in conjunction with, the unaudited comparative interim financial statements and notes of Pembina Pipeline Income Fund (the Fund) as at and for the three months ended March 31, 2006, along with the Fund's Management's Discussion and Analysis and audited financial statements and notes for the year ended December 31, 2005.

This MD&A has been reviewed and approved by both the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors and by the Board of Directors. All amounts are listed in Canadian dollars unless otherwise specified.

Fund Description

Pembina Pipeline Income Fund is among the predominant issuers in the Canadian energy infrastructure trust sector. Pembina's extensive network of conventional liquids feeder pipelines, and growing presence in the oil sands and midstream sectors, provide an integral service to the western Canadian energy industry. This balanced portfolio of high quality, long-life energy infrastructure assets supports the stability and sustainability of the Fund.

Pembina Pipeline Income Fund, an unincorporated open-ended trust, pays monthly cash distributions to Unitholders. Pembina's publicly traded securities trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbols: PIF.UN - Trust Units; PIF.DB.A - 7.50% convertible debentures, and PIF.DB.B - 7.35% convertible debentures. Pembina's corporate head office is located in Calgary, Alberta.

Fund Strategy

Pembina's principal objective is to provide a stable stream of distributions to Unitholders that are sustainable over the long term while pursuing opportunities for enhancement through accretive growth. We believe the most prudent manner to achieve this objective is to maintain and to develop assets around our hydrocarbon-liquids services business within western Canada. We plan to develop this business through the continuous improvement and ongoing expansion of our asset base and the acquisition of quality energy infrastructure assets. To Pembina, "quality" means assets that are imbued with inherent competitive advantages, which are under long-term contract with credit-worthy customers, and either service or are in close proximity to long-life and economic hydrocarbon reserves. This strategy is designed to generate stable or increasing per-unit cash distributions to Pembina's Unitholders over the long term.

Pembina structures its business in three segments: conventional pipelines, oil sands infrastructure and midstream business. Pembina's primary objective for its conventional assets is the maintenance of operating margin contribution while pursuing opportunities for throughput and revenue enhancement. Margins are maintained through the use of toll management, strict adherence to control of operating costs and asset rationalization. By offering cost-effective, competitively positioned and reliable transportation services to our customers, we strive to continue to attract new business.

Pembina will continue to use its uniquely positioned oil sands infrastructure and operating knowledge to pursue future opportunities. The fully contracted and long term returns generated by these assets provide a secure stream of stable cash flow to the Fund, and further expansion of Pembina's business interests in this area is considered a key objective.

In its midstream business, Pembina will continue to roll out new services over certain conventional pipeline systems. Pembina anticipates that this integration strategy will produce significant benefits to both our customers and Unitholders of the Fund, by expanding the range of services offered, extending the economic life of our asset base and providing substantial revenue enhancement potential.

Pembina transported an average of 454,300 barrels per day (bpd) on its conventional pipeline systems during the first quarter of 2006, up 3 percent from the 441,200 bpd transported during the previous three months and up 2 percent over the 445,700 bpd transported during the first quarter of 2005. Pembina's Alberta pipeline systems transported an average of 427,600 bpd during the first quarter, an increase of almost 3 percent compared to the 417,100 bpd shipped during the previous three months, and up slightly from the 423,000 bpd shipped during the first quarter of 2005. On the British Columbia (BC) systems, volumes of 26,700 bpd transported on the Western system during the first quarter of 2006 were higher than both the previous three months, at 24,100 bpd, and the first quarter of 2005 at 22,700 bpd.

Pembina's conventional pipelines have continued to benefit from record levels of oil and gas industry activity and increased production levels in some of its service areas. Several new connections and facility upgrades on the conventional systems brought incremental volumes that more than offset the natural production declines in these mature areas, continuing the upward trend in throughputs on the conventional systems which began in 2005. In particular, the connection of three new Nisku zone production facilities to the Pembina system increased throughputs in the first quarter of 2006, resulting in a significant year over year increase on that system and pushing throughputs to higher levels than seen in several years. By the end of the first quarter, throughput derived from these three new connections was approaching 10,000 bpd and the newly constructed facilities have been sized to meet producer-requested handling capacity of up to 36,000 bpd.

The conventional systems generated revenue of $56.4 million during the first three months of 2006, a 10 percent increase over the same period of 2005. Revenue earned by the Alberta systems during the first quarter of 2006 was 8 percent higher than the first quarter of 2005, at $48.3 million and $44.7 million, respectively. Average revenue on the Alberta systems of $1.26 per barrel during the first three months of the year was up 9 cents compared to the same period in 2005. Higher revenue on the Alberta systems was partially attributable to tariff increases that were effected on certain systems at the end of 2005 and during the first quarter of this year. The BC systems generated $8.1 million in revenue during the quarter, an increase of 23 percent over the $6.6 million generated during the first three months of 2005. Average revenue on the BC systems was $1.49 per barrel during the first quarter of 2006, compared to $1.28 per barrel during the same period of 2005. Increased revenue on the BC systems is attributable to increased volume transported on the Western system.

Pembina continued work on new connections and facility upgrades on the Alberta systems during the first quarter of 2006. Several major facility upgrades are currently under development on the Peace system with the combined potential to add incremental volume of 5,000 bpd by mid-year. Included in these developments is a new connection that commenced production late in the first quarter which Pembina believes has the potential to add 2,500 bpd of throughput. The Calven Pipeline connection to the Peace system is now mechanically complete and start up is scheduled for the second quarter of 2006. Pembina estimates that this connection will add an incremental 18,000 to 20,000 bpd with another 3,500 bpd in the fourth quarter of 2006.

During the first quarter of 2006, AOSPL generated revenue of $14.8 million on its contracted capacity of 389,000 bpd. Revenue was down slightly compared to the $15.3 million earned during the previous three months, but up over 20 percent compared to the $12.2 million generated during the first quarter of 2005 due to the flow through of higher operating costs. AOSPL revenue is contracted to recover operating costs and earn a return on the capital invested to provide the contracted capacity, and is therefore not impacted by throughput levels. AOSPL throughput volumes averaged 209,500 bpd during the first quarter, compared to 230,700 during the previous quarter and 162,400 bpd during the same period of 2005.

Pembina's two new oil sands infrastructure investments, the Cheecham Lateral and the Horizon Pipeline, are proceeding as expected. The Cheecham Lateral is under construction and is scheduled to be in service by the end of 2006. Negotiations on formal documentation for the Horizon Pipeline continued in the first quarter of 2006, and are nearing completion. Pembina recently placed an order for approximately $50 million of pipe in anticipation of commencing construction on this project (see "New Developments and Outlook").

Pembina's midstream business unit consists of its 50 percent interest in the Fort Saskatchewan Ethylene Storage Facility as well as the terminalling, storage and hub services. Pembina's 50 percent interest in the Fort Saskatchewan Ethylene Storage Facility generates fixed contracted returns over the term of the agreement that extends through June 2023. Along with stable, long-term cash flow, this asset provides diversification of Pembina's business into the petrochemical sector without corresponding commodity price exposure. Pembina continued to develop its terminalling, storage and hub services activities during the first quarter of 2006, as these services were implemented on the Swan Hills and Cremona systems. In addition, Pembina is continuing to develop similar services elsewhere on certain of the conventional systems.

The midstream business unit contributed revenue of $10.3 million during the first three months of 2006, a 67 percent increase over the first quarter of 2005 revenue of $6.2 million for this segment. The significant increase in revenue was mainly attributable to activities under the joint venture with Keyera Energy becoming fully operational during the first quarter of 2006.

Expenses

Operating expenses totaled $29.6 million during the first quarter of 2006, compared to $25.0 million incurred during the same period of 2005. Over one-half of the increase in total operating costs during the quarter is attributable to AOSPL, where a routine internal inspection resulted in higher maintenance costs. Also, power costs on AOSPL increased significantly year over year, due to increased throughputs coupled with higher power rates. On a unit of throughput basis, operating costs on Pembina's conventional pipeline systems averaged 52 cents per barrel for the first quarter of 2006, compared to 48 cents per barrel during the same period of 2005. Increased costs on the conventional systems were partly attributable to the BC systems, where internal inspection and repair work increased maintenance expenses during the quarter. Increased volumes on some of the conventional pipeline systems resulted in higher power requirements.

The enhanced internal pipeline inspection program, which commenced in 2004, continued into 2006 with one of the three pipeline inspections planned for this year complete, with no critical issues identified. This program utilizes new crack detection technology and will be run on eight pipelines over a four-year period, at an estimated cost of $16 million. The program is scheduled for completion in 2007. The crack tool program augments Pembina's regularly scheduled preventative maintenance and pipeline integrity and is designed to provide further assurance of safe, reliable pipeline operations.

During the first quarter of 2006, general and administrative expenditures were $6.7 million, compared to $4.1 million in the first quarter of 2005. The increase is attributable to an increase in staffing levels related to growth in business operations, market-based salary increases, and an increase in short term and long term incentives, as Pembina responds to an increasingly competitive employment market.

Cash Distributions

The Fund pays cash distributions on a monthly basis to Unitholders of record on the last calendar day of each month. Distributions are payable on the 15th day of the month following the record date. In late 2005 Pembina announced a 9 percent increase in its distribution objective, to an annual rate of $1.14 per Trust Unit commencing in January 2006. In the first quarter of 2006, the Fund declared distributions of $0.2850 per Trust Unit, or $33.6 million in aggregate, compared to $0.2625 per Trust unit, or $27.2 million in aggregate, paid in the first quarter of 2005. Under Canadian tax laws, a component of the Fund's cash distributions are taxable in the hands of the Unitholder, with the remaining portion a return of capital, unless held in a tax-deferred account. Pembina estimates that 75 percent of the distributions declared in 2006 will be taxable and 25 percent will be a return of capital for Canadian tax purposes. For purposes of calculating the capital gains upon disposition of the Trust Units, the amount considered a return of capital will reduce the Unitholders' adjusted cost base of each Trust Unit for Canadian tax purposes.

Pembina maintains a notional distribution reserve in order to ensure stability over economic and industry cycles and to absorb the impact of material one-time events, therefore not all available cash is distributed to Unitholders. During the first quarter of 2006, $2.1 million was added to the distribution reserve, resulting in a notional amount of $17.2 million at March 31, 2006. The payout ratio during the first quarter of 2006 of 94 percent compares to 99 percent for the same period of 2005. Pembina estimates a full year payout ratio of approximately 90 percent in 2006, compared to 92 percent in 2005.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Pembina's bank facilities include an unsecured $230 million revolving credit facility and a $30 million operating line of credit. At March 31, 2006, Pembina had $142 million drawn, leaving $118 million of undrawn capacity on the $260 million in established bank facilities. These facilities are extendible annually by the lenders for 365-day periods, and have been extended to July 24, 2006. Should the lenders not extend these facilities in the future, the outstanding amounts will be repayable over three years with 25 percent of the principal due in equal quarterly payments over three years, and the balance due at the end of the term. Other debt includes $97 million in Secured Senior Notes due 2017, $175 million in Unsecured Senior Notes due 2014 and $75 million of Floating Rate Senior Notes due 2009. At March 31, 2006, Pembina had long-term debt of $489 million, compared to $465 million at December 31, 2005. This long-term debt, together with $158 million market value of outstanding convertible debentures, resulted in a ratio of debt to total enterprise value of 23 percent. This compares to a ratio of 27 percent at the end of 2005.

Net debt financing costs of $5.8 million were recorded during the first quarter of 2006, compared with $6.5 million during the first quarter of 2005. Interest rate exposure on Pembina's floating rate debt is managed utilizing interest rate swap instruments. At March 31, 2006, Pembina had interest rate swaps in place on a principal amount of $85 million at an average rate of 5.5 percent and an average term to maturity of 1.7 years. The mark-to-market value of these instruments represented an unrealized loss of $0.1 million at March 31, 2006. As at the end of the first quarter of 2006, Pembina has fixed interest on approximately 73 percent of its long-term debt in order to minimize exposure to rising interest rates.

To finance committed capital projects, Pembina has arranged a private debt placement of $200 million, as described below, that will be drawn in September 2006. This, together with capacity available on the existing bank facilities and additional equity raised through the DRIP, will be sufficient to finance these projects.

Subsequent to the end of the first quarter of 2006, Pembina Pipeline Corporation, the Fund's primary operating subsidiary, announced that it has entered into an agreement with institutional investors in the United States and Canada providing for the private placement of $200 million of Senior Unsecured Notes. The notes will mature September 30, 2021 and will have a fixed interest rate of 5.58 percent. Closing of the placement is expected to occur on September 30, 2006.

Pembina's objective is to maintain favourable credit agency ratings. These rating systems recognize the stable profile of the Fund's assets and financial results, as well as the sustainability of the per Trust Unit distributions. The Dominion Bond Rating Service Ltd. (DBRS) has assigned Pembina Pipeline Income Fund a STA-2 (low) stability rating. DBRS's stability rating scale is from STA-1 to STA-7, with STA-1 representing the highest rating possible, and STA-7 the lowest. DBRS's rating system measures the volatility and sustainability of distributions per Trust Unit. Pembina Pipeline Corporation, the Fund's primary operating subsidiary, is also rated by DBRS, which has assigned a senior secured debt rating of 'BBB High' and a 'BBB' senior unsecured debt rating. Standard & Poor's (S&P) rates Pembina Pipeline Corporation as follows: 'BBB' long-term corporate credit with a stable outlook, 'BBB plus' senior secured debt and 'BBB' senior unsecured debt. According to S&P's rating system, debt instruments rated BBB have adequate protection parameters.

During the first three months of 2006, capital expenditures totaled $38.9 million, versus $8.1 million incurred during the same period of 2005. Essentially all of the capital spent during the first quarter was development capital, with $0.4 million in maintenance capital incurred on the conventional pipelines and midstream business. Of the $38.5 million in total development capital expended during the quarter, $26.5 million was incurred in oil sands infrastructure, including $24.0 million on the construction of the Cheecham Lateral and $2.3 million on the Horizon Pipeline. A total of $11.6 million of development capital was incurred on the conventional pipelines, which included $4.7 million on the Peace system and $4.0 million on the Western system in BC. Major costs on the Peace system included completion of the natural gas liquids pipeline interconnection between the Peace and Northern systems, and several major facility upgrades that are underway. In BC, the Western system Pine River crossing project, which was at risk of becoming exposed after the record rainfalls of 2005, is underway and accounted for $1.9 million. Development capital is currently financed utilizing existing credit facilities and Pembina's distribution reinvestment plan, whereas maintenance capital is financed from Pembina's operating cash flow. Committed capital expenditures will be financed utilizing existing credit facilities and proceeds from the DRIP.

    Critical Accounting Estimates and Changes in Accounting Principles and
    Practices

There were no changes in Pembina's critical accounting estimates or principles and practices that affected the disclosure of or the accounting for its operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2006. Such critical accounting estimates are presented in Management's Discussion and Analysis for the year ended December 31, 2005.

New Developments and Outlook

Pembina continued to reverse the historical trend of declining throughputs on its conventional pipelines during the first quarter of 2006, as new connections and facility upgrades brought incremental volumes which more than offset the natural production declines in these mature producing regions. Pembina expects that strong operating results produced by the conventional assets, together with the growth in oil sands infrastructure and the continued development of midstream business initiatives, will result in improved results in 2006.

Pembina's conventional pipeline business continued to benefit from the record setting level of oil and natural gas industry activity in many of its service areas, contributing to Pembina's stronger aggregate operating performance during the quarter. Renewed industry development of the Nisku zone in south-central Alberta has resulted in a material increase in projected receipts on the Pembina system for 2006 and beyond. In addition to the 2005 expansion of a truck unloading facility on the Peace system, Pembina completed the new natural gas liquids (NGL) interconnection between the Peace and Northern pipelines during the fourth quarter of 2005. This interconnection creates an incremental 25,000 bpd of carrying capacity on the Peace system, which will be available to transport NGL production that is projected to increase in northwestern Alberta during 2006. Several additional projects are currently under development on the Peace system, with the combined potential to add incremental throughput volume of 5,000 bpd by mid-2006.

Further development of Pembina's terminalling, storage and hub services operations are ongoing. Pembina is actively evaluating opportunities to establish these services across our conventional pipeline systems as resources and expertise are developed. As this new business is rolled out, Pembina anticipates the midstream unit to become a significant source of revenue. Leveraging existing infrastructure assets and market position to create these new revenue streams further diversifies Pembina's business and extends the economic life of our conventional asset base.

The two new investments in oil sands infrastructure announced in 2005 continue to progress. Construction of the $42 million Cheecham Lateral is well underway and the project is scheduled to be in service by the end of 2006. Once complete, the Cheecham Lateral will have the capacity to transport 136,000 bpd of synthetic crude oil from Pembina's existing AOSPL system to a new terminalling facility near Cheecham, Alberta. The Horizon Pipeline is proceeding as expected, with formal agreements nearing execution and construction expected to commence later this year. The Horizon Pipeline will provide exclusive transportation to Canadian Natural Resources Limited's Horizon Oil Sands project, located 70 kilometers north of Fort McMurray, Alberta. This service is scheduled to be operational by mid 2008, at an estimated cost of $300 million. Together, the Horizon Pipeline and Cheecham Lateral initiatives will elevate Pembina to among the largest of the oil sands infrastructure players and position Pembina to capture further growth in this area.

Pembina recently announced that it has entered into a Development Support Agreement ("DSA") for a Condensate project with a syndicate of shippers. The proposed project involves the establishment of a marine terminal in Kitimat, British Columbia and construction and operation of a proposed pipeline and related facilities capable of transporting 100,000 bpd of imported condensate from Kitimat, British Columbia for delivery to Pembina's Western system near Prince George, British Columbia, where the condensate can access Pembina's network of provincial and interprovincial pipelines. Pembina believes that this project could represent an attractive transportation solution for shippers seeking to satisfy demand for diluent required in the transportation of heavy oil sands production.

Pembina is continuing to explore the potential associated with miscible carbon dioxide ("CO2") flooding, a method of enhanced oil recovery. Several producer CO2 pilot projects are currently underway in western Canada. This longer-term prospect has potential to significantly increase production in several of the crude oil producing fields delivering into Pembina's Alberta conventional pipelines. These fields, located in Pembina's Swan Hills, Redwater and Pembina service areas, have been identified by industry as being potentially amenable to the application of this technology. In addition to the potential for incremental volumes on our existing pipelines, Pembina may also have the opportunity to participate in the construction of new CO2 pipelines utilizing its existing network of right of ways.

During 2005, S&P named the 72 trusts selected for inclusion in the S&P/TSX Composite Index. These issuers, including Pembina, were added to the index at a 50 percent weighting in December 2005, and the remaining 50 percent market weight of income trusts was added to the Index following market close on March 17th.

Over Pembina's eight years as a publicly traded income fund, Pembina has established a reputation for stable operations and a record of consistent and growing distributions to Unitholders. Since our initial public offering in October 1997, Pembina has distributed a total of $723 million, or $8.54 per Trust Unit, on a $10 per unit original issue price. We have met our distribution objective in each year of our public history. For the twelve months ended March 31, 2006, Pembina generated a total return of 45 percent. Growth in all three of our business units enabled a 9 percent increase in our distribution rate effective January 2006, and the breadth of tangible and prospective growth opportunities currently under development across all of our business segments lend confidence in our continuing ability to meet our objectives.

    (1) Refer to "Non-GAAP Measures" below.

Pembina's stable operations typically produce limited variability in quarterly results. However, continued growth in Pembina's underlying asset base has generally resulted in increased revenues, expenses and cash flows over the last eight quarters. Variations in this trend result from one-time events and expected seasonal factors which impact oil and gas production, occurring most frequently during the second quarter of each year.

Additional Information

Additional information relating to Pembina Pipeline Income Fund, including the Fund's Annual Information Form and financial statements, can be found on the Fund's profile on the SEDAR website at www.sedar.com.

Non-GAAP Measures

Throughout this MD&A the Fund and Pembina use the term "distributed cash" to refer to the amount of cash that has been or is to be available for distribution to the Fund's Unitholders. "Distributed cash" is not a measure recognized by Canadian generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Therefore, distributed cash of the Fund may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers, and investors are cautioned that distributed cash should not be construed as an alternative to net earnings, cash from operating activities or other measures of financial performance calculated in accordance with GAAP as an indicator of the Fund's performance.

Further, the use of terms "EBITDA" (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization), "net operating income" and "enterprise value" are not recognized under Canadian GAAP. Management believes that in addition to earnings, EBITDA, net operating income and enterprise value are useful measures. They provide an indication of the results generated by the Fund's business activities prior to consideration of how activities were financed or how the results are taxed and, in the case of enterprise value, the aggregate value of the Fund. Investors should be cautioned, however, that EBITDA, net operating income and enterprise value should not be construed as an alternative to net earnings, cash flows from operating activities or other measures of financial performance determined in accordance with GAAP as an indicator of the Fund's performance. Furthermore, these measures may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers.

    Notes to the consolidated financial statements:
    (Tabular amounts in thousands of dollars, except per Trust Unit amounts)

    1.  Significant accounting policies:

        The interim consolidated financial statements of Pembina Pipeline
        Income Fund ("the Fund") have been prepared by management in
        accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in Canada.
        The interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared
        following the same accounting policies and methods of computation as
        the consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended
        December 31, 2005. The disclosure provided below is incremental to
        that included with the annual consolidated financial statements. The
        interim consolidated financial statements should be read in
        conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and the notes
        thereto in the Fund's annual report for the year ended December 31,
        2005.

    2.  Business segments:

        The Fund conducts its operations through three operating segments:
        Conventional Pipelines, Oil Sands Infrastructure and Midstream
        Business.

        Conventional Pipelines consists of the tariff based operations of
        pipelines and related facilities to deliver crude oil, condensates
        and natural gas liquids in Alberta and British Columbia.

        Oil Sands Infrastructure consists of the AOSPL system, the partially
        completed Cheecham Lateral and the Horizon Pipeline. As at March 31,
        2006, only the AOSPL system was operational.

        Midstream Business consists of the Fund's direct and indirect
        interest in the Fort Saskatchewan Ethylene Storage Partnership (the
        "Partnership") and terminalling, storage and hub services.

        The financial results of the business segments are as follows:

        The net earnings per Trust Unit are based on earnings available to
        Unitholders and the weighted average Trust Units outstanding for the
        period. The earnings available to Unitholders for the first quarter
        was $20.2 million (2005 - $14.6 million). The weighted average Trust
        Units outstanding for the first quarter were 117,784,000 Units (2005
        - 103,776,000).

        The diluted earnings per Trust Unit are based on net earnings and the
        weighted average Trust Units outstanding adjusted for the dilutive
        effect of convertible debentures and employee Trust Unit options. The
        net earnings for the first quarter was $22.7 million (2005 -
        $19.3 million). In computing diluted earnings per Trust Unit,
        11,908,000 Trust Units (2005 - 21,903,000) were added to the weighted
        average Trust Units outstanding for the first quarter for the
        dilutive effect of convertible debentures and employee Trust Unit
        options. Diluted earnings per Trust Unit are not disclosed as the
        amounts are anti-dilutive. At March 31, 2006, 1,016,059 options
        (March 31, 2005 - 868,936) were outstanding and exercisable at a
        weighted average price of $12.07 (March 31, 2005 - $9.76).
