Talking to Emerans
K'jipuktuk (Halifax) - Mutiny was in the air today in Halifax, both inside and outside the Emera AGM. Screaming for de-privatized power, about 75 members of anti-capitalist action group Solidarity Halifax chanted and sang shanties outside of Emera head office, while shareholders on the inside decried the nose-dive in public approval their cash cow had of late been taking.
I had the opportunity to attend the AGM, and spoke with Chris Huskilson, President and CEO of Emera, John McLennan, Chairman of the Emera Board, Rob Bennett, President and CEO of Nova Scotia Power, and Jerry Ackerman, relunctant Emera shareholder.
