"Following the successful integration into the ICE family, WCE will take on the ICE brand in 2008, enabling us to fully leverage the resources of our company as well as bring together the diverse range of products ICE offers on a global platform," said ICE chairman and ceor Jeffrey C. Sprecher.
WCE is Canada's only agricultural commodity exchange and North America's first fully electronic agricultural exchange. Its Canola futures contract is the world's leading canola contract.
