In overhauling Canada’s regulatory environmental review process, Bill C-69 has good intentions, but as written it would endanger the very things it is trying to fix: explains Patrick McDonald of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers. 

McDonald and Energy Examined host Tonya Zelinsky discuss what's involved with this controversial proposal, the latest update on Senate deliberations, and why Bill C-69 could drive away investment and cost jobs in industries well beyond oil and natural gas if it isn't changed to prevent an already complex regulatory review process from becoming unmanageable.
