Enbridge Spin Doctor Snarls about "Dirty Oil" Essay | Franke James

Somehow I landed on the radar of Doug Ford, who decided it was his job to educate me - and my readers. (We're not talking about Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's brother, Doug Ford.) This Doug Ford is the Head of Communica whose clients include Enbridge, Exxon Mobil, Encana, Shell Canada and Kinder Morgan. (Read his case study on the multi-faceted communications work they do for Enbridge Northern Gateway.)
However, when Doug dropped by my site and left lengthy comments about the pipeline and oil sands pollution, he didn't mention that he worked for the oil industry. But his testy comments made me curious... using his name and email address I quickly discovered that he's a "somebody" in the oil and gas industry, with 25 years under his belt and extensive regulatory experience. He's been an expert witness at National Energy Board hearings, and also in Quebec with respect to "pipeline consultation thresholds and practices". Maybe because he's a "somebody", Doug Ford was a little peeved that I didn't post his comment immediately. So he posted another... From: Franke James Date: Wed, Jun 20, 2012 at 2:03 PM Subject: My response and an invitation To: Doug Ford, Principal and Senior Consultant, Doug, Nice to meet you. Don't worry -- your comments will be posted. Just working on my response. BTW, I'm writing an article on oil and the question of sustainability for a prominent magazine. Considering your clients, I think you may be interested in connecting me with some people. Yesterday I interviewed an executive with a major oil company. Cheers, Franke, Franke James, MFA, Bothered By My Green Conscience On Wed, Jun 20, 2012 at 2:05 PM, Doug Ford wrote: Thanks Franke. While I enjoyed the article - I obviously see the issues through a different prism. Doug Can Doug Ford's critical comments - considering he's the Principal and Senior Consultant of a communications firm working for Enbridge Northern Gateway - be a breakthrough? To be honest when I first read them I wanted to jump in and correct all the inaccuracies, false statements, and wrong-headed assumptions. (My essay took five months to create and all of the quotes and statistics are thoroughly documented with links to my sources.) But as I stepped back I realized, Doug Ford is just doing his job -- defending the interests of Enbridge Northern Gateway, Kinder Morgan, and his other "Big Oil" clients. Funny thing though -- I think his clients would be much better served if he acknowledged the facts: When Doug Ford first made his comments on June 20/12, the letter tally was at 6,872. Doug Ford's comments I am not sure ) and it never leaks once, then Doug Ford is honest. Seeing as the Kalamazoo pipeline leaked Tarsands, you should ask him to show you the math he uses for his marketing. I am sure Doug is a mathematician, first, right? I like the way you handled Ford.

Communica doubles office space in Vancouver - Communica Public Affairs Inc.

Communica Principal and Senior Consultant Doug Ford provided the opening remarks and Emma Shea, our B.C. Operations Manager and Senior Consultant, made everyone feel welcome.

About Communica Public Affairs Inc.

In 2010, Doug Ford became the sole owner of Communica, and has built the company into the 30 person team it is today.
Affectionately known as the "energizer bunny," for the first four years of Communica, Doug commuted weekly to Calgary from just outside Edmonton where he and his family were living at the time. He set up space in the basement of Communica's office to get a night's sleep in between project demands. Committed? You could say that. Recognizing market trends, Doug finally moved to Calgary and added expertise to create Communica's Stakeholder Information Management (SIM) and Aboriginal engagement teams.
