Alberta’s NDP government must blame itself for electricity mess, McIver says

Alberta’s “incompetent” NDP government can only blame itself if it loses up to $2 billion on returned electricity purchase arrangements, interim Progressive Conservative leader Ric McIver said Tuesday.

“If they want to mess with things, government has the authority to do that,” McIver told CBC’s Edmonton AM.

“But they also have the responsibility to do their homework and know what the risks are, and the government was completely negligent and incompetent by not doing that homework.”

    This is a feature, not a bug.
    Sadly for the NDP, outright slavery is still illegal, so one way or another, they’re on the hook, and will either kill the companies in question (more likely, IMHO), or adhere to their contractual obligations(less likely).

    The contract is designed to prevent these sudden changes to regulatory climate from happening. Even though Notley wants to undue the 15 year old contract she can’t and has to either pay up or roll back her plans.
