The BC Hydro Fraud: CBC Nails it
CBC is reporting that "A report released by B.C.'s provincial government says the previous government pressured BC Hydro into signing long-term contracts with independent power producers (IPPs) that will cost customers over $16 billion over 20 years. The report says the former B.C. Liberal government "manufactured an urgent need for power while disallowing BC Hydro to produce it." It says the public utility was then forced to buy power from private producers at inflated prices, at the direction of the government." Global is covering the story as well.
Exactly. This is what Norm Farrell and I have been saying for years.
