In The NewsPIERIDAE CLOSES THE TSX – INJECTS SOME STAMPEDE SPIRIT!

July 09, 2019

'Pieridae Energy had the privilege to close the Toronto Stock Exchange today.

The TSX has a rich history, created in the fall of 1861 by 24 men who had gathered at Toronto’s Masonic Hall to set up a framework to trade assets.

Equally steeped in tradition, the Calgary Stampede’s roots are traced to 1886 when the Calgary and District Agricultural Society held its first fair.

So it was fitting for directors, leaders and employees of Pieridae to close the exchange not in suits, ties and business wear, but in blue jeans, cowboy hats and boots to recognize Stampede week and offer a bit of our culture to the markets.

“As former Alberta Premier and Calgary Mayor Ralph Klein said the Stampede symbolizes the province’s spirit,” Pieridae CEO Alfred Sorensen points out. “So it was special for us to share that spirit through the Toronto Stock Exchange and feature a company that is working to lay the groundwork for its own legacy.”

Canadian-owned Pierdae remains focused on developing our country’s only East Coast option to deliver Canadian natural gas through the $10 billion Goldboro LNG Project to global markets.
