Cape Breton Post - - NEWS -

HAL­I­FAX — The gov­ern­ment of New­found­land and Labrador is ex­plor­ing the idea of selling elec­tric­ity to On­tario. Nat­u­ral Re­sources Min­is­ter Derrick Dalley says the com­mit­ment was made Mon­day with On­tario Energy Min­is­ter Bob Chiarelli at the 2015 Energy and Mines Min­is­ters’ Con­fer­ence un­der­way in Hal­i­fax. Dalley says the an­nounce­ment fol­lows last week’s agree­ment by the Coun­cil of the Fed­er­a­tion on the Cana­dian Energy Strat­egy. He says the two prov­inces will dis­cuss op­por­tu­ni­ties pre­sented by the $8.6 bil­lion Lower Churchill hy­dro­elec­tric pro­ject in Labrador and other op­tions.
