TrueStar Announces Change in Auditor

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 22, 2006) - TrueStar Petroleum Corporation (TSX VENTURE:TPC) announces that it has engaged BDO Dunwoody LLP as its auditors until the next annual general meeting at a remuneration to be fixed by the directors. Morgan & Company, Chartered Accountants, resigned as auditors for TrueStar effective January 17, 2006 stating that they do not have the physical resources to staff the Company's needs properly as a result of the increasing size and scope of TrueStar's business. TrueStar and Morgan & Company have no disagreements on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedures.

The BDO organization has offices in both Vancouver and Houston and is experienced in dealing with companies with multi-national activities such as TrueStar. "TrueStar's reporting and auditing requirements became much more complicated in 2005. BDO's breadth and depth of organization and experience should be of great benefit to us as we continue to grow. We look forward to BDO's assistance in working with us to meet our reporting and filing obligations," stated Robert E. Chamberlain, Jr., CEO.

The Company would like to thank Morgan & Company for their past services and their co-operation with the transition.
