TORONTO, March 5 /CNW/ - CEO Richard Nesbitt today launched TSX Group's
US campaign for 2007. Speaking to reporters during a media briefing at the
Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada's (PDAC) International
Convention, Mr. Nesbitt said, "the purpose of this campaign is to raise our
visibility, raise U.S. awareness of our strengths, and attract new U.S.
listings, trading activity and data customers to our exchanges."
The 10-city tour will kick off in New York City on April 11. The first
roadshow takes place in Denver and Reno in May. The second roadshow will be in
