Bill Bennett's relationship with the independent provincial agency responsible for regulating British Columbia's oil and gas industry is starting off on a different foot than that of his predecessors. In a blog posting published yesterday, the East Kootenay MLA writes he "spent a few hours with Oil & Gas Commission" on July 23. "Surprisingly," he continued. "I am the first Energy minister to spend time meeting with the OGC! I guess the guys before me figured they knew enough about the Commission's work but OGC staff sure appreciated my being there discussing the issues they encounter."
