32. ITEMS LEFT BEHIND

Any items left behind by Guest will be held for approximately six months and every reasonable effort will be made to contact Guest for their return. However, ultimately Lessor is not responsible for these items. If they are not claimed within six months, Guest forfeits Guest's right to such items and Lessor shall not be held responsible for any disposal.


33. SEVERABILITY

If any part of sub-part of this agreement is deemed invalid by court order, judgment or other operation of law, the remaining parts and sub-parts of this agreement shall remain valid and enforceable to the fullest extent.


34. NO WAIVER

If Lessor fails to enforce strict performance of any part or sub-part of this Agreement, this shall not be construed as a waiver of Lessor's right to enforce the same part or sub-part later in time or to enforce any other part or sub-part.


35. GOVERNING LAW

This Agreement will be governed by and construed exclusively in accordance with the laws of the province of Alberta, and the laws of Canada in effect in Alberta. For litigation arising from this Agreement, the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Alberta, and to any other court having jurisdiction over the party solely to enforce a judgment of a court of Alberta. Neither party may seek to enforce an order that has its origin in any court other than the courts of Alberta.


36. NOTICES

Notices given under this Agreement or other applicable law will be given in writing. Notices by the Guest to Lessor will not be considered complete until actual receipt by Lessor at the address listed at the head of this Agreement. The Lessor or Lessor's agents, including any property managers, secretaries, or assistants, shall accept demands and/or service of process at the same address. Notices by the Lessor to the Guest shall be deemed delivered when deposited in the mail to the address of the Property or hand-delivered or placed in the mailbox of the Guest at the Property. Notices by the Lessor to the Guest will be deemed delivered if addressed to a last known post office box address of Guest.


37. COUNTERPARTS

This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, all of which will constitute a single agreement.
