Why I am excited about the power rate increases.

In answer to enquiries on Electricity rates:

The point of the increases is to ramp up charges so we will be used to paying California prices (highest in the world) for the electricity for our homes by the time the new generation comes on by Fording for Brooks Alberta and the Peace River power generation are ready to deliver.

The increases taken between now and completion of these plants will go to corporate profits; part of the exercise.

Lots of reasons for you to vote in the next election!
