Dear Ministers:

Three times I have asked you, does your announced budget of 358 million dollars power subsidy money for Albertans apply to power transmission as well as power price increases.

I have seen announcements of 100 billion dollars (half of Canada’s national debt) in Transmission Lines, Generating Facilities, Railroads and pipelines.

I have seen absolutely nothing about how you expect to pay for this! Incredible!

You legislated a difference between power supply (increased supplies coming on should mean lower power prices) and electrical transmission (these prices will be astronomical)!

The question is simple enough for honest people.

Does your “budget for power charges to protect Albertans” extend to the separate billing of power transmission charges? If so, will transmission charges be frozen for us at today’s rates?

John Clark
