ST. JOHN'S, March 26 /CNW/ - FP Resources Limited (the "Company") today

regulatory authorities in each of the jurisdictions in which it is a reporting
issuer to cease to be a reporting issuer. Applications will be made in the
provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario,
Québec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador. Upon
completion of these applications, the Company will no longer be a reporting
issuer in any jurisdiction and will no longer be subject to any of the

The Company also announces that effective at the close of business on
Monday, March 24, 2008, the common shares of FP Resources Limited ("FP") were
delisted from the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX"). The common shares were

investment business of FP under the name "FP Resources Limited". For more
