Well, I sure hope that the panel will be pushing nuclear power as a means to produce electricity. To do otherwise will be irresponsible.

On May 1, the Ontario Government plans to open our electricity market to competition. They have begun leasing and selling 65 per cent of the power generating capacity of Ontario Power Generation, and plan to sell Hydro One. Both were formerly part of Ontario Hydro. New regulations have been introduced and more are coming. What does all this mean for your taxes and hydro bills, the environment, and the reliability of electricity in the province? The cost of electricity impacts everything from the production of goods and services, to home and commercial utilities, and jobs.
Will the new regulations provide more options for green energy? What lessons can we learn from other jurisdictions, such as California, Alberta, Pennsylvania and the U.K.? What are our choices, and what can we expect?
