WINNIPEG — Manitoba Hydro has asked the courts to force a whistleblower to turn over her reports to another consulting firm hired to check her work.
Hydro filed the application in the Court of Queen’s Bench just before Christmas and a hearing is slated for Jan. 19.
The whistleblower, a New York-based risk expert, has raised serious alarm bells over Hydro’s financial forecasts and the stability of the province’s power supply. Hydro has said her allegations are unfounded, but the Crown power company hired KPMG to review her reports.
Because of non-disclosure agreements, the whistleblower has refused to allow Hydro to turn over her reports to KPMG.
According to court documents, that will hamstring KPMG’s investigation and hamper Hydro’s ability to understand, test and respond to the whistleblower’s allegations.
