Toronto Stock Exchange Senior VP at Gala Annuel des Sociétés boursières 2008

    QUEBEC CITY, Feb. 27 /CNW/ - During a speech at the Gala Annuel des
Sociétés boursières 2008, Richard Nadeau, Senior Vice President of Toronto
Stock Exchange, told attendees that Quebec remains an important marketplace
for the exchange group. Not only is TSX working on a business combination with
the Montreal Exchange but there are many local initiatives also underway to
further build local presence in Quebec.
    One such event is TSX Group's sponsorship of the 2008 Special Olympics
Canada National Winter Games. "This is an exciting time in Quebec City with
the 400th anniversary celebrations well underway. One of the highlights for me
is the 2008 Special Olympics Canada National Winter Games, which opened here
yesterday and will continue until Saturday. I have been personally involved
with the Special Olympics for many years. It is an organization which holds a
special place in my heart and I am proud that TSX Group is a major sponsor of
this year's Games."
    Mr. Nadeau went on to say that Quebec City is as an important economic
centre with many emerging entrepreneurs who could gain access to a vast global
network by publicly listing their companies.
