Curtis: With the delay in Keystone XL, will attention now shift to the Northern Gateway?

At the political and media level, yes for several days at most. Keystone will go forward in 2013/14 once all regulatory approvals are obained; Northern Gateway will proceed on a slower track with much more regulatory obstruction…still, it demonstrates once again that Canada is a Pacific power (the real purpose in building the CPR 125 years ago) as well as an Atlantic and continental power. We’re both at the margins of things or at the centre, depending on one’s perspective!
