If yours are in a tfsa then your right...no problem.I  had mine converted to prefferred shares which i can hold forever literally and cash em in when i want at that days trading price.I like that as im down on the buyout but as you say maybe theyll go up and i can cash em in then,and if not i can take a loss in the far future if i want to...it was a bit confusing but hopefully most didnt get burned to badly.
