Re: Former Manitoba premier to swing axe for Alberta’s softwood lumber industry (May 8)

My congratulations to Gary Doer for landing this important job, and I am sure he will do admirable work for the government of Alberta.

Perhaps, though, he should have been hired by Manitoba to peddle some of the power generated by the dams that were initiated in his governing days in Manitoba. Ideally, he would sell it at the market rate the consumer in Manitoba pays, and not the current cut rate for exported electricity.
