Max Pozzoni, President and Chief Financial Officer of True North Energy Corp., states: "We are delighted that True North is now listed on one of America's premier exchanges. As we move forward and execute our strategic plan to demonstrate the resources of True North's Alaskan oil and gas rights portfolio, a national stock listing places us in an excellent position.
