The Fraser Institute: Media Advisory; Report Examining Risks to Canadian Energy Exports From U.S. Political Appointees Coming Thursday, June 13

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 12, 2013) - The Fraser Institute will release a new report identifying risks to Canada's energy export ambitions on Thursday, June 13 at 6:30 a.m. (Eastern).

Obama's Green Team 2.0: Implications for Canadian Energy and Environmental Policy profiles the newly installed cabinet officials and agency leaders who will set energy and environmental policy for the president's second term. The report argues that because of the tradition of harmonizing U.S. and Canadian environmental policies, the positions of the 'Green Team' on three core issues (climate change, green energy, and fracking) will likely have direct impact on Canada.

A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwire on Thursday, June 13 at 6:30 a.m. (Eastern).

The full report will also be available as a free PDF download at
