  • (3) A form of proxy, an accompanying management proxy circular or a dissident’s proxy circular shall state, in bold-face type, that the shareholder may appoint a proxyholder, other than a person designated in the form of proxy, to attend and act on their behalf at the meeting, and shall contain instructions on the manner in which the shareholder may make the appointment.

  • (6) A form of proxy may confer authority with respect to matters for which a choice is not provided in accordance with subsection (5) if the form of proxy, the management proxy circular or the dissident’s proxy circular states, in bold-face type, how the proxyholder will vote the shares in respect of each matter or group of related matters.

  • (7) A form of proxy shall provide a means for the shareholder to specify that the shares registered in their name are to be voted or withheld from voting in respect of the appointment of an auditor or the election of directors.
