 CALGARY, Alberta, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- TransCanada PipeLines Ltd. today announced the appointment of Arthur Jacob (Jake) Epp as a senior vice president of the company, effective Sept. 1, 1993.
 "Mr. Epp's primary responsibilities will be related to development of the company's international business interests," said Gerry Maier, TransCanada's chairman and chief executive officer. "As the North American gas industry matures, and as other countries increasingly recognize the merits of natural gas, we see opportunities emerging in the international arena that represent logical strategic extensions of our existing businesses. We are pleased to have someone of Mr. Epp's stature join the TransCanada team."
 Prior to his appointment with TransCanada, Epp served for 21 years in the House of Commons. First elected in 1972, Epp was appointed a member of the Cabinet on three occasions, most recently as Minister of Energy, Mines & Resources, a position he held from 1989 until January 1993. From September 1984 until January 1989, he served as Minister of National Health and Welfare; and from June 1979 until February 1980, he was Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development. Epp will resign his seat as member of parliament for Provencher, Manitoba, prior to joining TransCanada.
 A native of Manitoba, Epp earned his bachelor of arts (1961) and bachelor of education (1965) degrees from the University of Manitoba, and he was awarded an honorary doctor of laws degree from Trinity Western University in 1987. In his new duties, Epp will relocate to Calgary.
