TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 9, 2008) - The 200-member Ontario Energy Association (OEA) is pleased to have Mr. Gaetan Caron, Chair and CEO, National Energy Board (Calgary, Alberta) and Mr. Brian Frank, President, BP Energy Company (Houston, Texas) as the next two speakers in its 2008 Breakfast Speakers' Series. Mr. Caron will deliver his address on Tuesday, May 13th, and Mr. Frank on Tuesday, June 17th, with both events taking place from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. at The Sutton Place Hotel in downtown Toronto.

"Energy has certainly become a top-of-mind issue for most Canadians, with media attention increasing daily and focused on a wide range of energy-related issues, challenges and opportunities," said OEA President and CEO Shane Pospisil.

"It is important that we step back from time to time in an effort to better understand the dynamics at play and the implications for Ontario's energy sector and the Ontario economy," Pospisil added. "This is what the 2008 OEA Breakfast Speakers' Series is all about - a broad-based dialogue involving 12 key industry leaders, decision-makers and stakeholders aimed at furthering our collective understanding of the proverbial 'big picture.' Clearly, Gaetan and Brian are an essential part of this dialogue and we are looking forward to hearing their views and perspectives on many of the important issues they are currently dealing with in their respective roles."
