TransCanada Reports Second Quarter Results, $22 Billion Capital Program Drives Future Growth

CALGARY, Alberta – July 29, 2010 – TransCanada Corporation (TSX, NYSE: TRP) (TransCanada or the Company) today announced net income applicable to common shares for second quarter 2010 of $285 million or $0.41 per share. Comparable earnings were $275 million or $0.40 per share. Net income applicable to common shares and comparable earnings were both reduced by $28 million ($0.04 per share) due to losses on derivatives used to manage the Company’s economic exposure to rising interest rates and foreign exchange rate fluctuations on U.S. dollar denominated income and foreign exchange losses on conversion of U.S. dollar working capital balances due to the strengthening U.S. dollar. In addition, approximately $20 million ($0.03 per share) of net income related to the Alberta System was not recognized in the first six months of 2010 pending final approval by the National Energy Board (NEB) of a three year settlement with customers.

Statement from Bruce Power regarding Sierra Club letter

TIVERTON, ON – July 22, 2010 – A letter posted to the website of the Sierra Club regarding Bruce Power’s proposal to recycle steam generators as part of our Bruce A Restart project contains a number of inaccuracies which we would like to clear up.

Bruce Power has met the requirements of the Environmental Assessment and the steam generators were transported to the Western Waste Management Facility. Our plan to recycle these steam generators is consistent with the Environmental Assessment on the Restart project which states (on page 25 of the Screening Report) that “non-radioactive wastes will be reused or recycled to the degree possible.” The shell of the vessels is clean and can be melted down and recycled while any components inside the vessels that cannot be recycled due to low levels of radioactivity will be returned for long-term storage.

Cross-border Investment Disputes on the Rise; Thorny Issues for Ottawa, Provinces: C.D. Howe Institute

Toronto, July 22 – Cross-border Investment disputes have supplanted trade disputes as the main focus of legal actions under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), according to a study released today by the C.D. Howe Institute. In “Trend Spotting: NAFTA Disputes After Fifteen Years,” author Lawrence Herman finds a growing number of these investment disputes entail challenges by American investors against Canada’s provincial, as opposed to federal, laws and regulations. So important constitutional issues need clarifying between Ottawa and the provinces. “As party to the treaty, Ottawa must carry the ball in court,” notes Mr. Herman, “but who is really responsible? Who pays when the provinces – or municipalities – run afoul of Ottawa’s multilateral commitments?”
