Now it bites us in the ass!

Posted on Fri, Sep 2, 2011 at 9:52 AM

We (the people of Nova Scotia) used to own a little utility called Nova Scotia Power Inc. This utility paid for itself and employed many of mine and your neighbours. The government of the day (1992) took it upon itself to privatize this particular utilty on our behalf (thanks for not asking). Since, employment has dropped to near nothing and there seems to be no limit to the increases in our rates (anyone else know of an investment which has a legislated minimum return rate?). You hear no mention of this in any news medium. Where is my cheque for my share of the utility which was sold? Or better yet, have NSPI returned to the government at the price it was sold. Don't even get me started on the coal mines and the dirty lies and fabricated reports which made BILLIONS for Joe Shannon and Paul Martin!!! —Cape Fifer
