Audit of National Energy Board Reveals Ongoing Incompetence

OTTAWA - The National Energy Board is taking it on the chin again in another critical audit of its performance as Canada’s pipeline regulator by the federal commissioner of the environment and sustainable development. This is the second highly disturbing audit result for the NEB in the last four years.

One of the most important critiques of the NEB in 2011 was that they were terrible at making sure that pipeline companies actually did what the board ordered them to do. Ensuring compliance is arguably the most important task of this or any other regulator.
