(a) in the event that a proceeding, claim, action, suit or complaint with respect to a Released Claim is brought by a Releasing Entity against a Released Entity, this release may be pleaded as a complete defence and reply, and may be relied upon in such a proceeding as a complete estoppel to dismiss the said proceeding; and,

(b) in the event of (a), the Releasing Entity that initiated the proceeding shall be liable for all reasonable costs, legal fees, disbursements and expenses incurred by the Released Entity as a result of such proceeding.

This release shall not be operative in any proceeding in which a Released Claim is made (or a Claim Over results in a Released Claim being made) against RJR, its Affiliates or the Released Entities, by a Releasing Entity or by an Entity claiming through or on behalf of a Releasing Entity, including the Governments and for avoidance of doubt such Governments' crown-controlled corporations or crown agencies.

16. The Releasing Entities acknowledge and agree that nothing contained in this Agreement, or any plea made, any statement of fact submitted or any conviction recorded in any related contemporaneous criminal proceeding shall constitute an admission by any Released Entity that it has committed a "tobacco related wrong" or a "wrong committed by a tobacco product manufacturer" within the meaning of any provincial or federal legislation, including without limitation, legislation providing for recovery of health care benefits or costs as such legislation may now or in the future read.

17.

ARBITRATION AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION

29. It is the intention of the Parties to settle consensually, by negotiation or agreement, any disputes with respect to performance, procedure and management arising out of this Agreement.

30. Any notice of a dispute shall be delivered by RJR or Canada (as the case may be) to the other in writing and shall be dealt with in the first instance for Canada by the Director General, Excise and GST/HST Rulings Directorate, Legislative Policy and Regulatory Affairs Branch, Canada Revenue Agency and for RJR by the General Counsel or equivalent who shall promptly discuss and attempt to resolve the dispute.

31. Any dispute between the Parties to this Agreement arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any breach, clarification, or enforcement of any provision of this Agreement or any conduct contemplated herein, that remains unresolved 90 days after the date of the notice of dispute, may be referred to arbitration in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Code (the "Code"), being a schedule to the Commercial Arbitration Act R.S.C. 1985, c. 17 (2nd Supp.). Arbitrations shall be with a sole arbitrator. The Parties will select a mutually agreeable arbitrator within 30 days of the delivery of the notice of dispute who shall serve as arbitrator in respect of any disputes hereunder, unless and until he or she becomes unable or unfit to act as arbitrator (in which case the Parties shall immediately appoint a successor arbitrator within 30 days). If the Parties are unable to agree on the arbitrator, he or she shall be appointed, upon request of a Party, by the court or other authority specified in article 6 of the Code.

32. The arbitrator shall have all of the jurisdiction of a Superior Court judge of the Province of Ontario to grant both legal and equitable remedies. The arbitrator may abridge any time limit herein for the referral of the dispute to arbitration, in his or her discretion, in the event of urgency.

33. The arbitration proceedings shall be conducted in Ottawa, unless otherwise agreed by the Parties to the dispute. Consistent with relevant law, and any applicable law governing disclosure obligations, the arbitration proceedings shall be confidential to the extent possible, and the Parties shall not disclose the nature or scope of the proceedings, or any information obtained in or arising out of the proceedings, to any third party. No amicus curiae or "friend of the court" briefs may be filed in the proceedings. RJR expressly agrees and undertakes on behalf of itself and all Affiliates that it shall not, in any proceeding, submit, argue, consent or agree that the Revenue Rule has any applicability to this Agreement or any obligations thereunder including the enforcement thereof, or that any Payment due is in respect of taxes owing to the Government of any Canadian jurisdiction or is for any other reason unenforceable. The arbitrator shall provide the rules of the proceedings and shall issue a written opinion stating the reasons for the relief granted. The Parties agree that the orders, decisions, and awards of the arbitrator shall be exclusively enforceable in the Federal Court, as a judgment of that Court, and any action to compel arbitration shall be commenced in the Federal Court.

CONFIDENTIAL NATURE OF DISCUSSIONS

34. The Parties agree that all discussions and negotiations related to or associated with this Agreement have been conducted on a strictly confidential basis and that the Parties have agreed that, prior to this Agreement becoming effective, no public disclosure of the existence of such negotiations or discussions be made.
