September 8, 2010 - 11:30pm to September 9, 2010 - 2:00am

There is high risk and large upfront investment required for large infrastructure projects. Given the recent BP and Enbridge oil spills and impacts of actions from government agencies, ENGO, etc – what are the expected outcomes for the industry? Dennis McConaghy of TransCanada talks about increasing regulation, corporate responsibility and the impacts of current events on projects like McKenzie and Gateway.
