NOTICE OF PROPOSAL
I PROPOSE TO MAKE AN ORDER under section 69 of the PBA that the Pension Plan for Employees of Hastings Inc. (the “Plan”) be wound up effective May 10, 2004, inclusive of all members terminations from that date until August 13, 2004.
There was a cessation or suspension of employer contributions to the pension fund. The employer failed to make contributions to the pension fund as required by the PBA. The employer is bankrupt within the meaning of the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (Canada).
A significant number of members of the pension plan ceased to be employed by the employer as a result of the discontinuance of all or part of the business of the employer or as a result of the reorganization of the business of the employer.
All or a significant portion of the business carried on by the employer at a specific location was discontinued.
Such further and other reasons as may come to my attention.

(the Tribunal) pursuant to section 89(6) of the PBA. To request a hearing, you must deliver to the Tribunal a written notice that you require a hearing, within thirty (30) days after this Notice of Proposal is served on you.*
