Analysis: Good reasons to worry about Hydro

This article doesn’t provide me with glowing comfort about Carol Bellringer and her management abilities. Click here to read the full article or an excerpt below.

 

 

Manitobans should worry about the investigation of Hydro by Auditor General Carol Bellringer. She was a member of Hydro’s board and chaired its audit committee in 2004 and 2005. Possible failures of oversight, supervision, personnel decisions and direction by the board during those years might be an issue in a thorough investigation. It is not enough that “outside expertise” will be brought in to work under Bellringer, or that the Ombudsman will provide oversight. In the interests of an independent, rigorous, and objective review of Manitoba Hydro, she should have no involvement in the review to avoid any appearance of being unconsciously influenced by her past close connection with the utility.
