It is time to start preparing for the Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Awards and Gala Night. The Advisory Board is scrutinizing the nominations the Chamber has received in different award categories. It is an arduous task and the independent Advisory Board performs it with zeal and dedication. The venue of the Annual Awards and Gala Night has been changed to a brand new location – the Paramount Eventspace in Woodbridge.

The change in venue signals a new direction. The Chamber’s new leadership is conscious of utilizing precious public resources with utmost judiciousness. As a part of new strategy, we have also consciously focused on qualitative programming instead of having a large number of events, and this has definitely resulted in a shift of paradigm in terms of overall utilisation of resources that our sponsors, who are our partners in success, entrust us with annually.

The Chamber continues with the tradition of celebrating the achievements of Indo-Canadians at the Annual Awards and Gala Night, which is one of the biggest events in the annual calendar of the Indo-Canadian community. For the Chamber’s leadership, it is that one event where we pull all stops and go forward with renewed determination and dedication to achieve the primary objectives of the four-decades-old institution namely fostering bilateral trade ties between Canada and India and create opportunities for the entrepreneurial and professional members of the community.

I’m sure all of you are eager to know how this year’s awards will pan out. Let’s continue with our hoary tradition of making the Chamber’s Annual Awards and Gala Night a grand success. I invite you to buy your tickets and tables for this grand event scheduled for Sunday June 17, 2018. You may buy online or call the Chamber’s office.  I look forward to seeing you at the event and enjoy an entertainment-filled evening with speeches by key decision-makers and the honouring of our community’s brightest.

Pipeline obstructionism costing Canada billions 
By Elmira Aliakbari & Ashley Stedman 

The recent decision by Kinder Morgan, one of the largest energy infrastructure companies in North America, to halt all “non-essential spending” on the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion—which would run from Alberta, through British Columbia, to the coast—made headlines across the country.

Stories have focused on inter-provincial rivalries and trade wars. But an often ignored or misunderstood aspect of the pipeline debate is how much Canadians lose by not having sufficient pipeline capacity to deliver our oil to market. According to a recent Fraser Institute study, Canadian oil producers will lose $15.8 billion in revenue this year. More on that in a moment.

Despite increased oil production in recent years, Canada has been unable to build any new major pipelines due to the cancellation of the Northern Gateway and Energy East projects, and ongoing delays in the Trans Mountain expansion, Line 3 replacement project and Keystone XL.

Take the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, for example. The B.C. government continues to oppose the project, despite regulatory approval, and is pursuing legal means to regulate the movement of diluted bitumen through its territory. Such political opposition raises serious concerns about whether the pipeline will actually be built.
