The most effective way to counter any external challenge is to ready a robust campaign that comprises proactive and reactive communication activities. Borrowing a page from the modern political playbook, we recommend a three-track approach to build the necessary campaign infrastructure. This approach strives to neutralize risk before it is leveled, respond directly to issues or attacks as they arise, and apply pressure – intelligently – on opponents, as appropriate.

Content will be specifically tailored to advocacy audiences, including clear calls to action and strong statements of support for the project and its benefits.

Environmental NGOs, politically engaged Québec stars and other opposition groups have successfully deployed social media and other digital tools to deliver strong messages that resonate with the general public and apply significant pressure on decision makers. In order to navigate the Energy East project through these complex new realities, we have agreed to embrace a new communications approach with the express purpose of driving an active public discussion about Energy East that gives Québécois reason to affirmatively support the project in the face of organized opposition. By setting a new course in how we engage, the Energy East team has an opportunity to create a model for best engagement practices within TransCanada and position itself as the model for innovative communications within the Calgary oil and gas industry.
