CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/30/13 -- Canadian Oil Sands
Limited (TSX:COS) (OTCQX:COSWF) (COS) today announced a donation of
$3 million to the Calgary Stampede as it moves forward into its

also be the new setting for Indian Village and First Nations

represents our city's great heritage, but also has a unique vision
for building a year-round, world-class gathering place for Calgarians
and visitors," said Marcel Coutu, President and Chief Executive
Officer of COS. "The same Western values of determination,
entrepreneurialism and a can-do spirit that created the oil sands
industry were integral to transforming a small-town rodeo into The
Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth. We are pleased to support an
organization that prides itself in bringing people together to
commemorate Calgary's Western and agricultural traditions."

expected to attract one million visitors annually.
