Back to the present?

If you think you've seen this movie before, you have. As the Financial Post reported on June 15th —

June 15th, 1974, that is:
Power lines will cost more than power plant

Transmission systems are becoming a much-discussed and expensive aspect of electric power planning in the Atlantic Provinces.

In the most extreme cast, figures recently released by the Newfoundland government show that transmission from the proposed hydroelectric development on the Lower Churchill River will cost more than the generation facility itself.

The cost of hydro facilities at Gull Island is estimated at $494 million. Associated transmission costs come to $547 million.

The Newfoundland government is asking Ottawa to foot the transmission bill.
