"Nothing is going to go wrong." -- Mike Harris, 2001 Privatization of power soon became one of the biggest political disasters in Ontario history. Hydro reveals a train wreck that was decades in the making. First there was blind faith in the nuclear option, steeped in ecological arrogance. Then came the promise of marketplace magic. Jamie Swift and Keith Stewart tell the tale of how it unfolded. It's a dramatic story of the greed, intrigue, and resistance that led to the dismantling of Canada's largest crown corporation. A crucial part of the story is how Ontario ignored thirty years of green arguments for conservation and renewable energy. Based on interviews with former premiers, Hydro insiders, and grassroots activists, Hydro will intrigue anyone wondering how to keep the lights on without frying the planet.
Jamie Swift is the author of numerous books, from biography and history to corporate muckraking. Keith Stewart works with the Toronto Environmental Alliance and teaches environmental studies and public policy.
