TransCanada name change 'de-emphasizes' Canada for leery investors: analyst

Company changes name to TC Energy, will still trade as TRP on Toronto and New York stock exchanges
Dan Healing · The Canadian Press · Posted: Jan 09, 2019 6:23 AM MT | Last Updated: January 9

A planned move by TransCanada Corp. to change its name to TC Energy will help it attract investors who are "leery" of putting money in anything Canadian given the country's recent difficulty in building energy projects, a U.S.-based financial analyst said Wednesday.

{Snip}

"Some investors have grown leery of investing in Canada. I think this is a way to de-emphasize Canada, quite frankly," said Jennifer Rowland, a St. Louis-based analyst for Edward Jones, noting delays in building new oil pipelines led to Alberta imposing crude production constraints on its producers.

"Removing Canada from its name is a way to remind investors it's not just a Canadian company, with some of the challenges we're seeing in Canada."

We already know the answer to this from the Liberal peanut-chuckers - it's all Harper's fault!

If not Harper, then a deflection to Trump. Anything but the take the blame for their own idiocy.

As usual cherry pick and imply misleading conclusions.....here's other parts of your link....and remember EnCana rebranded itself in 2011 for the very same reason....that would be the Harper years :biggrin:

"Removing Canada from its name is a way to remind investors it's not just a Canadian company, with some of the challenges we're seeing in Canada."

She said the name change recalls the move by Calgary-based EnCana to rebrand itself with a lower-case "C" in 2010, thus de-emphasizing its Canadian roots.

But Calgary-based analyst Matthew Taylor of Tudor Pickering Holt & Co., said he accepts the company's explanation, adding the move has been talked about for some time.

"To suggest one of the biggest corporations in Canada is changing its name to distance itself from Canadian policies? I don't know that I agree with that when a good chunk of their customers are still Canadian and who they interact with are still Canadian," he said.

There's good reason for the company to be proud of its Canadian roots, he added, given its place on stock market indexes of Canadian firms and Canada's reputation versus the United States in Mexico.

TransCanada says it has about 7,000 employees in North America, with 3,500 in Canada, 3,200 in the U.S. and 300 in Mexico.

It said its new name reflects its diverse business interests in pipelines, power generation and energy storage operations in the three countries.

The Conservatives could only have dreamed of having such a fawning media that the current guy enjoys. It's just like with the first Trudeau.

Trudeau blasted as 'a liar'

The Canadian Press - Jan 10, 2019 / 6:54 am | Story: 246409

Audience members react as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks during town hall Q&A at Thompson Rivers University.

Indigenous people voiced their anger and frustration with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Wednesday at a chaotic town hall in Kamloops, loudly interrupting him to condemn the arrests of protesters at a pipeline blockade.

While Trudeau was answering a question on accountability for the oil and gas industry, a man who identified himself as Will George stood up and began to yell that the prime minister had lied about wanting reconciliation with First Nations.

"You're getting people arrested," George said. "You're a liar and a weak leader. What do you tell your children?"

Pretending that any political party can navigate the morass of FN politics is just another piece of nonsense from the far right "Harper nasty"crowd. This same general group protested CONservatives during the bungle decade. They are currently protesting the coalition government of the NDP and Green*, and the Liberals. In a different context, the same "Harper nasty" crowd would be denigrating this group.

So "Harper's nasty little boys": what? Do the CONservatives have to offer in this regard? Less than nothing as usual.

Harper didn't lie to First Nations by promising the undeliverable. The FN hated Harper because he wouldn't promise the moon, of course. Now FN are mad at Trudeau because as he did with so many groups, he lied his *bleep* off to get their votes. The only ones Trudeau didn't lie to were the stoners, and they are so messed that they can't remember what he promised in the first place.

Oh good grief. More tripe from the "Harper nasty" crowd.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/first-nations-chief-theresa-spence-calls-for-solidarity-protests-1.1289145

"As First Nations Chief Theresa Spence's hunger strike continues, the chief called for weekend solidarity protests from all Canadians to force Prime Minister Stephen Harper to meet with her and other native leaders angered by his policies."

http://www.theharperdecade.com/blog/2015/7/14/harpers-10-year-war-on-first-nations

"In ten short years, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has set the relationship with First Nations back a hundred years. While all past governments have had a hand in the colonization and oppression of First Nations, the Harper government stands out as one of the most racist and aggressive governments that First Nations have had to work with in many generations. His government’s pattern of victim-blaming, racist stereotyping, and using misinformation to vilify First Nations leaders in the media has led even the most reserved voices at the United Nations to conclude that Harper’s actions have put “social peace” at risk. It should be no surprise, then, that Idle No More, representing the largest, most coordinated social protest movement in Canada, arose during Harper’s regime."

Your CONservative partisan revisionist history fails again the light of the facts. The LIberals, and others, are trying to clean up an absolute mess left by the CONservatives during the bungle decade. In this context, you can by being intemperate and high handed indeed destroy 100 years worth of work.

CONservatives would be wise to accept the fact that their party was a disaster in FN relationships, and it will take decades to regain the lost trust - if ever.
