No request requiring a hearing was delivered to the Financial Services Tribunal within the time prescribed by subsection 89(6) of the PBA regarding a Notice of Proposal to make a Declaration that the Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund applies to Pension Plan for Salaried Employees of Lindsay Electronics Inc. (the “Plan”).

I DECLARE pursuant to sections 83 and 89 of the Act  that the Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund (Guarantee Fund) applies to the Plan for the following reasons:


  1. The Plan is registered under the PBA, and

  2. The Plan provides defined benefits that are not exempt form the application of the       Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund by the PBA or the Regulations made thereunder, and

  3. The plan was wound up effective December 2, 2005 , and

  4. There are reasonable and probable grounds that the funding requirements of the PBA and    regulations cannot be satisfied. The administrator has estimated the deficit in the Plan at the wind up date to be  $1,581,200, and

  5. Based on the latest actuarial certification, there is an estimated claim against the Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund of $1,356,000 as at October 31, 2006. If funds become available from the estate of the employer, the administrator will be required to make an appropriate refund of any allocation amount received by the Plan from the Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund.
