Quebec ice storm: Why it's impossible to storm-proof the power grid
CBC News
The ice storm that left an estimated 155,000 Quebecers in the dark this weekend had echoes of the Great Ice Storm of 1998, which left millions of homes in Eastern Canada without electricity for weeks. This time, power was restored relatively quickly — within 12 hours for the majority of Quebecers — which reflects some of the lessons hydro-electricity producers have taken from the 1998 black-out to make their power grids more reliable.

Highest electricity rates in North America
Inside Belleville
The Liberals claim Ontario's hydro rates are competitive but they remain the highest in North America. I am going to give you a few examples of hydro rates from British Columbia, Manitoba and Quebec. In B.C., their price is 10 cents per kWh and their only service fee is $6.81 cents. In Manitoba, their price is 7.1 cents per kWh and their only service fee is $7.38 cents. Quebec's hydro prices are about the same as Manitoba prices.

These are among the hazards that Manitoba Hydro wants residents to know about, so they can be safe this winter. "It's important to know that contact with a downed power line could be fatal," according to a Manitoba Hydro press release.
