116.4. Where the total number of months in the base contributory period of the contributor, after any exclusion under section 116.3, exceeds 120, a number of months equal to the lesser of the following is excluded from the base contributory period:
(a) 15% of the total number of months, counting any fraction of a month as a whole month;
(b) the number of months by which the total number exceeds 120.
The exclusion is effected by selecting the months for which the base pensionable earnings are the lowest; as a consequence of the exclusion, the sum of the base pensionable earnings corresponding to the months so excluded is subtracted from the total of the base pensionable earnings of the contributor.
