There's enough undeveloped Hydro in Quebec and Labrador to power most of North America...Unfortunately there are also segmented indigenous self-interests that have been conditioned to believe that the land should simply continue to provide for them as distant descendants of nomadic people....Now through legal-political leverage rather than work.
There are also lots of up-and-coming constitutional lawyers who are eager to make names for themselves in filing landclaims to leverage historical anachronisms in exchange for serious financial gains in modern times as well...All based on a sense of historical entitlement that is uniquely Canadian.
So don't count on Hydro to come to the rescue, without making some serious concessions to a privileged class of Canadians.
Too bad that so many people have been conditioned to fear nuclear, when cars are still killing and maiming more people on a daily basis than have ever been hurt by nuclear energy in it's entire history...
Cue the self-rightous reactions based on misplaced guilt, fear, and knee-jerk ignorance.
