Why have one government head office, when you could have multiple power corporations in Winnipeg vieing to selling power. The ability of the free market to finance the expansion of power generation in the north is much stronger. Overall you'd see an explosion of investment and jobs, but since it would reduce the number of government workers the NDP would never allow it.

MB Hydro could remain as a utility company .. selling power locally and regulating the overall industry, but opening up Manitoba's energy industry to private investments would pay off huge dividends to the province. Its really obvious if you examine it objectively.
