(b) the knowledge of a director, officer, employee, agent or mandatary of the corporation.
(4) If the directors are required to determine the total number of voting shares of a constrained share corporation held by or on behalf of persons other than Canadians, the directors may rely on the sum of the voting shares held by every shareholder whose latest address as shown in the securities register is

(b) in Canada but who, to the knowledge of a director, officer, employee, agent or mandatary of the corporation, is not a Canadian.
