Honorable Ralph Klein,
Room 307
Legislative Building,

The Honorable Minister Patricia L. Nelson,

Honorable Murray Smith, Minister of Energy,
404 Legislature Building,
Edmonton, AB T5K 2B6

Dear Ministers:

With so much debt coming on line from Government invented and controlled corporations for power generation and transmission your stance of coming out of debt is a fiasco to say the least.

Your recent comment on having a budget of some 358 millions of dollars to cover power increases raises more questions and anxiety than the cost plus projects you are entering into!

It is difficult to accept you at your word as given because you imply a lot more than what you detail then, deny. Power prices generally drop as more power is brought onto the grid. Your “protection” in turn changed or turned off at your whim. This we have lived through too many times! Now the door is open for you to say the out going ministers had it all wrong and “adjustments” will have to be made.

However, with our politically debilitated power grid about to suck 14 billions of dollars out of Albertans (include Wind subsidy) I ask you is it your intention to protect Albertans from increases in power transmission that appear on our utility bills?

Seniors and other people on fixed incomes will in no way imaginable be able to afford the utility prices coming at them under your jurisdiction!

A $358 millions of dollars sounds like a lot of money but it is 1/10th the amount needed to protect Albertans!

Your creditability is at low ebb, straight and definitive answers please!

John Clark
