Sir Robert Bond emerges from hibernation, and analyzes this:
One interesting tid-bit that's turned up already: last fall, natural resources minister Kathy Dunderdale made a comment in an interview with Ted Blades, a comment that seemed strange at the time.Interesting. Very interesting.
She said something to the effect that Hydro would buy power from the Lower Churchill. It seemed strange at the time since any Lower Churchill development corporation seemed like a natural subsidiary of Hydro itself and therefore, Dunderdale would have the company buying power from itself.Turns out she was right, but the rest of us couldn't have known it in September 2007.
The plan, as contained in the EnerCorp strategic plan - released in March 2008 - is to have Hydro as a subsidiary of EnerCorp alongside all the companies that used to be subordinate to Hydro.
So maybe, just maybe, Kathy Blunderdale wasn't exactly mis-speaking for 8.5 minutes when she started blabbing off about a putative boondoggle of a lawsuit on the Upper Churchill contract.
Maybe what really incurred the Wrath of Our Dan is that she spilled the beans.
