Herald: Hehr says he’ll fight to keep NEB in Calgary

This is an excerpt from a Calgary Herald article.

What really matters in the coming months is what the federal Liberal government thinks of its new expert panel report that recommends uprooting parts of the national energy regulator from the city as part of a broader plan to reform the agency.

Now, the only Calgarian in the federal cabinet has weighed in, in what looks like a signal on where the Trudeau government will go next.

“I’ve been around this business getting to be a long time. Reports get written … recommendations get made, things are looked at and sometimes they are absolutely ignored,” Veterans Affairs Minister Kent Hehr said in an interview Friday.

“In my view, the National Energy Board should stay right in Calgary. We have a long line of expertise and talent and the like, so you know where I will be putting my full support, behind it staying in Calgary.”
