Bruce Heyman is about to get a lot busier. With a new prime minister and a new cabinet coming into power, Heyman has a fresh set of politicians to brief on U.S. priorities. Heyman is a personable guy, but behind the scenes, relations between Canada and the U.S. are said to have grown frosty over the Keystone XL pipeline.
