Energy Critic: Deregulating Power Industry Risky

The provincial government has let it be known it intends to look at de-regulating the power industry. It was a major platform in the Liberal Party election platform earlier this fall. The McNeil government says it would break Nova Scotia Power's monopoly and allow competition from other energy providers. Progressive Conservative energy critic Chris d'Entremont says such a move would not be without risks.

Legislation dealing with the issue is expected in the spring.
