The facts on Alberta, the PC Party and electricity.

Seen your power bill lately?  Wondering about why the PCs plan on spending billions of dollars, which WILL increase your power bill in the future, on new power lines? Interested in knowing the real facts on electricity in Alberta?

If you are interested, and even if your not, I suggest that you take some time, sit back and watch the following videos of a recent presentation from Joe Anglin on the subject. The 6 videos total about 1&1/2 hr in length ; watch them all at once or one at a time, but they are definitely worth watching and will open up your eyes to what is really going on here in Alberta. This is important and it does effect every person and business on Alberta.

Bonus video. Minister of Transportation, Luke Ouellette, and Minister of Sustainable Resource Development actually flew down to southern Alberta on tax dollars to bully their way onto the stage of one of Joe Anglin's presentations on electricity!

A must read on the subject. RETA: Responsible Electricity Transmission for Albertans.

I saw Joe do one of these a few months ago and I agree that everyone should watch this. I can't believe that this is happening here.

Thanks for posting this, I've been following this issue for a few years, before WRA even existed.

Why is Mel so excited and loud?

A real who's who on this board.

Where are those power lines headed again?

While we're on the subject, here's a write up by Lawrence Solomon of National Post fame on the subject of our transmission "problem".

Thanks for posting this. Boy does it show us how arrogant and out of control the PC's have become.

Hunter, the arrogance of the PC's makes the Paul Martin Liberals of '06 look like total amateurs.

Comment deleted. Stay on topic and stay on the right side of libel.

Deregulation or Enronization?

Joe Anglin nails it - This is crony capitalism at its best - or worst.

A must watch for every Albertan.

I chatted with a lawyer about some of Joe's comments regarding expropriation and compensation. Let's just that the lawyer and Joe see it differently.

I also talked to someone who worked with the transmission companies and the facts that Joe described appear to correlate well.
