Luc Bertrand, Vice-Chairman, National Bank Financial Group, Spokesperson, Maple Group Acquisition Corporation, to Address Economic Club

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 28, 2011) - When it comes to building a leading global exchange, Canada has everything it takes: a critical mass of industry expertise, long and deep experience in capital formation -- with particular expertise serving the needs of global resource and public venture companies -- and a regulatory system that is admired worldwide. Canada is at risk of seeing those assets and control over a key piece of our financial infrastructure traded away. But there is an alternative: the creation of a fully integrated exchange and clearing group with the scale and resources to stay globally competitive while continuing to meet the unique needs of Canada's capital markets. Join Luc Bertrand, an executive with first-hand experience in building great exchanges, as he lays out Maple's vision for a Canadian-owned, Canadian-based global exchange powerhouse.
