Governor Mead Celebrates Strong Energy Partnership with Canada at Cheyenne Frontier Days

Cheyenne Frontier Days inspire plenty of provincial pride, but the 10-day event is also an opportunity to continue strengthening ties with our neighbors and trading partners to the north.

Governor Matt Mead and Canadian Consul General Dale Eisler will co-host the Seventh Annual Cheyenne Frontier Days Barbeque Reception Thursday July 28th from 6:30-8:00pm. The reception is a venue for recognition and celebration of the mutually beneficial trading relationship between Wyoming and Canada. It is a chance for area leaders to discuss opportunities for increasing trade and investment as well as raise awareness of Canada’s position on bilateral issues, such as border security, trade and North American Energy security.
