"These documents were recently filed by Pimicikamak Cree Nation with the MN Public Utilties Commission as part of its consideration of NSPs request for proposals for a supply of an additional 1200MW of power.  This contract, if awarded to Manitoba Hydro, would likely involve further river diversions and more destruction of the boreal environment and Cree traditional lands. PCN's submission, a brief undertaken for it by an international team of energy and public policy experts including leading U.S. energy experts, has uncovered information concerning the energy-supply reliability of Manitoba Hydro's proposed bid, as well as concerns about the adequacy of the bid selection process. This information should be of wide interest to elected officials, Minnesota electricity consumers, public policy analysts, acedemics and the media.
