Electricity Deregulation in Canada: An Idea Which Has Yet to Be Tried
Keywords:Energy Law, Petroleum Law
AbstractThe author outlines the factors involved in the "deregulation " of government-controlled industries, highlighting confusion caused by that misdescription. The challenges facing the Alberta and Ontario governments in the fledgling efforts at restructuring their electricity industries are illustrated against a backdrop of lessons derived from the attempted "deregulation " of electricity in California, and from the Canadian experience with airline, telecommunications, and natural gas industry restructuring.
