Gutting a Power House
Study warns of plan to hand operation of BC electricity transmission system over to U.S. agency without public discussion

They are nothing of the sort--the changes will radically and irrevocably change the nature of BC Hydro. That's the conclusion of a new paper by SFU professor Marjorie Griffin Cohen entitled Gutting a Power House: BC Hydro and the new Energy Plan, released today by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives.
