OTTAWA — The Liberal government has chosen former Alberta trade representative Gitane De Silva to head its remodelled energy regulator, after Ottawa introduced controversial changes to the agency last year.
De Silva will replace Sandy Lapointe, who was serving as interim chief executive of the Canada Energy Regulator (CER), according to federal officials. Natural Resources Minister Seamus O’Regan is expected to make an official announcement on the appointment Thursday afternoon.
