BOARDWALK REIT ANNOUNCES AUTOMATIC TRUST UNIT PURCHASE PLAN IN CONNECTION WITH NORMAL COURSE ISSUER BID

CALGARY, Sept. 30 /CNW/ - Boardwalk Real Estate Investment Trust ("BEI.UN" - TSX) 

Boardwalk Real Estate Investment Trust ("Boardwalk REIT" or the "Trust") announced today that it has 
entered into an automatic trust unit purchase plan with a broker in order to facilitate repurchases of 
its trust units under its previously announced normal course issuer bid. 

On August 18, 2010, Boardwalk REIT announced that it had received approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange 
(TSX) to make a normal course issuer bid to purchase up to a maximum of 3,918,286 trust units representing 
approximately 10% of the publicly listed float. The normal course issuer bid commenced on August 24, 2010 
and will terminate on August 23, 2011, or such earlier date as the Trust may complete repurchases under 
the bid. 

Under the Trust's automatic trust unit purchase plan, the Trust's broker may repurchase trust units under 
the normal course issuer bid at times when the Trust would ordinarily not be permitted to due to 
self-imposed blackout periods. 

Boardwalk REIT anticipates renewing the plan from time to time during the course of its normal course issuer 
bid to enable purchases of its trust units to be made during internal blackout periods. Purchases will be 
made by the Trust's broker based upon the parameters prescribed by the TSX and applicable Canadian 
securities laws and the terms of the parties written agreement. The automatic trust unit purchase plan has 
been approved by the TSX and will be implemented effective as of September 30, 2010. 

A total of 208,400 trust units were repurchased for cancellation under the Trust's previous normal course 
issuer bid, which expired on August 19, 2010. 

Boardwalk believes that the current and recent market prices of its trust units do not reflect their underlying 
value. Boardwalk's management is initiating this program as it feels that, at current market prices, an 
investment in Boardwalk's own high quality portfolio will deliver strong returns for unitholders and represents 
an effective use of its capital and steadily increasing cash flows. At the same time, Boardwalk plans to 
continue its property acquisition and capital improvement programs. Boardwalk will purchase the trust units 
for cancellation with the intention of increasing the proportionate interest of all remaining unitholders.
