- Canadian energy companies grow increasingly nervous as Canada’s Liberal Party appears to be moving ahead of the incumbent Conservative government in the final days of a tight race ahead of Monday’s national election.
- "A non-Conservative federal government would likely be viewed in a negative light given the NDP and Liberal parties’ policies on environmental legislation, regulatory oversight and export pipelines,” Canaccord analysts write.
- Among potential winners and losers, analysts say stricter emissions rules favored by the Liberals and NDP could hurt shares of companies such as Suncor (NYSE:SU) and Imperial Oil (NYSEMKT:IMO), while those that produce greener energy and could sell credits or avoid new taxes may benefit, such as Brookfield Renewable Energy Partners (NYSE:BEP).
- Harper is the only candidate to favor all four pending major pipelines - TransCanada’s (NYSE:TRP) Keystone XL and Energy East, Enbridge’s (NYSE:ENB) Northern Gateway and Kinder Morgan’s (NYSE:KMI) Trans Mountain - and further delays could hit share prices.
- But more delays likely would mean higher crude-by-rail shipments, a potential benefit to Canadian National Railway (NYSE:CNI) and Canadian Pacific Railway (NYSE:CP).
