Gwynn Morgan Passes the Power


Gwyn Morgan of EnCana is stepping down from his CEO chair. Morgan has been a powerful dissenting voice on the Canadian political scene even though he held no elected office.

This past summer, he was part of a group of CEO's who chastised Paul Martin for his governance. They deemed Canada to be a nation adrift.

Though no stranger to controversies of his own, Morgan strongly opposed the Kyoto Agenda in a way that garnered national media attention, and the expected response.

On the other hand, he also supported Belinda Stronach as an angel of mercy for the CPC (although remember who comes clothed as an angel of light!), a decision which may be forgiven now since so many people were hood-winked by Stronach's celebrity.

Morgan believed that leaders cannot have their private and public conduct separated. In the wake of Bill Clinton, Enron, and the Liberal government of the last decade, we can only hope that some of Morgan's exhortations will be heeded in the future.

Interestingly enough... despite all the Flak that Morgan has recieved over Kyoto the actual Federal Kyoto plan for Industry is for all intent and purposes a carbon copy of the Internal Climate Change action plan of one of the Major Oil companies.

Many corporations are feeling pressured to side with Kyoto or other so-called 'green' policies (eg. carbon tax). I noted in an earlier post how companies are afraid of being seen as eco-unfriendly.

I was interested to see some of Morgan's statements which showed something of a pro-active interest in the environment, even though he opposed the science and politics of Kyoto. This may have been spin, or balance, depending on how you look at it.

We need a lot more Morgan's, only stronger, and preferably in Alberta. It's the only way were going to get out of this socialist rut we've been stuck in.
