In the Feb. 4 edition of Natural Gas Intelligence, a story titled "Producers Present Unified Front in Alliance-Nova Battle" contained unsubstantiated allegations against TransCanada PipeLines made by a spokesman for Alliance Pipeline. An Alliance official said TransCanada was under investigation by Canada's Bureau of Competition for "anticompetitive behavior, use of dominant power." The bureau, however, does not release any information regarding its investigations so the allegation could not be corroborated. In a letter to NGI, TransCanada said it is not under investigation. We apologize for printing the quotation without having independent confirmation of its truthfulness.
