An astute reader has searched my blog for my historical comments on NB Power and unearthed this blog from way back in 2005.
I actually stand by this blog post – there are likely many I wouldn’t – I still think it would have made sense to bring in Emera back then. I like Emera – I have said this many times. It seems like a well run company.
The problem in the current context is that Emera buying/taking over NB Power doesn’t fix our generation or debt problems the way the HQ model would have. Now that HQ is off the table, I would be more than willing to restate my position that a merger with Emera should be considered.
