    CALGARY, March 27 /CNW/ - The Board of Directors of True Energy Trust
("True") is reminding securityholders to cast their votes and submit their
proxies for the upcoming annual and special meeting (the "Meeting") scheduled
to take place March 30, 2007 at 10:00 AM (Calgary time) for the purposes of,
among other matters, voting upon the previously announced reorganization of
the Trust into a growth-focused exploration and production company (the
"Reorganization"). To be effective, proxies must be received no later than
4:30 p.m. (Calgary time) on Wednesday, March 28, 2007 by Computershare Trust
Company of Canada as set forth in the information circular of True related to
the Meeting. Persons who hold their trust units through a broker or other
intermediary may vote electronically by visiting or vote by
telephone, in Canada call toll-free 1-800-474-7493 or in the US call
1-800-454-8683 and entering your 12 digit control number and in accordance
with the instructions received from your broker or other intermediary (or ADP
Investor Communications on their behalf). If you have any questions regarding
the Reorganization or how to fill out your proxy, please feel free to contact
Kingsdale Shareholder Services Inc at 1-866-639-8089 or 416-867-2272.Key reasons why unitholders should vote FOR the Reorganization:

    -   The Reorganization allows True to reinvest the vast majority of its
        cash flows to further expand its capital program, for the benefit of
        all of True's securityholders.
    -   True has a significant drilling inventory which it believes makes it
        unique among oil and gas trusts and will help secure growth for True
        going forward.
    -   True's expanded capital program of approximately $50 million in the
        first quarter of 2007 produced very positive results.
    -   True has accumulated tax pools of more than $500 million to shelter
        taxable income.
    -   True plans to operate with the same growth-focus that contributed to
        the success that True had prior to reorganizing into a trust model.
    -   The Board of Directors of True continue to believe the Reorganization
        will provide a superior value to other alternatives which have been
        proposed in recent weeks.The Board of True has unanimously recommended that unitholders VOTE FOR
the Reorganization.
    Institutional Shareholders Services ("ISS"), Canada's leading independent
proxy advisory firm and formerly known as Fairvest, recommends that its
clients VOTE FOR the Reorganization of True into an intermediate oil and gas
exploration company and VOTE FOR the option plans proposed by True in
connection with the Reorganization.
