Peter O'Neil at Postmedia News counts the ways that Enbridge Inc. (TSE:ENB) harmed its chances of getting the Northern Gateway pipeline built due to its poor response to the Michigan pipeline spill.
"There's no sense they take any responsibility," said Daniel Tisch, president of Toronto based Argyle Communications. "It's as if it was all bad luck or an act of God – with no protagonist to take responsibility. Sure, the causes may be complicated, but do they accept even a share of the blame?"
"The prospects for the pipeline are likely dim without a significant boost in public and stakeholder confidence," Mr. Tisch said.
