The Public Utilities Board will meet Thursday to deal with a series of housekeeping matters as it gears up for hearings into the fate of future Manitoba Hydro dams.
The PUB is reviewing Hydro’s plan to spend more than $13 billion building the Keeyask and Conawapa dams, even though export prices have dropped and some critics argue the building boom is premature.
At Thursday’s preliminary hearing, Hydro is expected to offer an update on its "needs for and alternatives to" report on the Keeyask and Conawapa dams. And, PUB will begin considering which groups will win intervener status in the full public hearings expected later this year.
