SaskPower is doing really well

..and how are YOU doing?

Leader Post:

In total, SaskPower is forecasting 2005 earnings to reach $129 million, up $63 million from last year.

David MacLean, provincial director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, said the Crown needs to consider giving customers a break when profits are soaring.

"We can understand rate increases when they're related to increases in the price of coal or natural gas or low water conditions, but when we get hit with significant rate increases and profits are soaring like this we demand an explanation."

As long as they don't waste it again in general revenue!

Like that won't happen! This is strictly bribe money for the unions.

And bribe money for voters.

Of interest is the Gov of Sk "raiseaflag" website: the Calvert campaign for more fed equalization or whatever you want to call it: it has a poll: "does Saskatchewan deserve a fair energy accord?" and only 64%R have so far voted in favour.

The flag looks like it was designed by the Soviey school of art/propaganda.

78% now favour "fairness": I suppose that's good news.

This is great! Sask Power can give 150 mill dividend to Culvert to balance his books and then borrow 200 mill in spring to operate and raise the rates again. At least we aren't using that dirty coal as much or as Culvert calls the dirtiest Nuclear.

What is our actual debt crowns included?

How many crowns do we have?
