AUC denies Albertans

The Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) ruled on Monday against petitioners, and decided against

The Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) ruled on Monday against petitioners, and decided against having an oral (open) hearing into the proposed sale of AltaLink to Berkshire Hathaway. The opportunity for the public to have evidence crossed-examined in an open and transparent manner will now not happen!

The AUC’s decision is a tremendous injustice to the ratepayers of Alberta. Albertans will be directly impacted by this sale, and contrary to statements made by AltaLink executives, Albertans will pay for this sale via increased charges on every utility bill.

If the sale of AltaLink is approved under the current process, Albertans can expect to see increased charges on every utility bill to pay for this over-priced sale. Just how much utility bills will rise is not known, but it is known that the public will pay. Had the AUC ruled to hold an open and transparent hearing, Albertans might have had an opportunity to learn just how much this sale will cost.
