Poverty activists conceded recently that it would be reasonable for Manitoba Hydro to raise its rates.
Only Hydro Quebec has lower rates than Manitoba — and just barely. Rates in Ottawa and Halifax are almost double Manitoba's.
It's clear electricity rates are going up, possibly considerably. The forecast under the former NDP government had been four per cent a year for the next 20 years, but Hydro chairman Sandy Riley warned that' just a starting point.
A review of the route chosen for the controversial multi-billion dollar Bipole III project has concluded it must proceed despite escalating costs.
"Rerouting the Bipole III transmission line down the west side of the province was obviously a wrong decision, one forced on Hydro by the previous government," Manitoba Hydro-Electric Board Chair, Sanford Riley, said.

The Pallister government has approved a new five-year contract with the province's engineers that will see some receive a pay hike of more than four per cent this year.
The agreement, retroactive to spring 2014, calls for annual wage increases of one, one, two, two and two per cent. Some senior engineers will see a further top-up of 2.5 per cent this year.
The agreement is similar to a deal reached earlier this year by the province and its 14,000 civil servants, represented by the Manitoba Government and General Employees Union.

As the University of B.C.'s Brock Commons — the largest mass timber structure in the world to date standing 18 storeys and 54 metres — rises on campus, it is casting a construction shadow that extends far north. "The building is catching the interest of architects and engineers because it is an unusual way to build a tall building and also because it went up quickly," said heavy timber specialist Dave Gardner for Structurlam, the Penticton manufacturer supplying the mass timbers used in the Brock Commons residential building.
Federal officials have quietly warned operators of electrical grids, transportation hubs and other key infrastructure of the cyberthreat from insiders who could unleash devastating viruses and cripple systems, internal government notes reveal.
Crucial networks that Canadians rely on for everyday needs face a "substantial threat" from rogue employees out to wreak digital havoc, warn the Public Safety Canada briefing notes.
"The insider threat is difficult to detect and can cause real damage."
