Hydro compromise draws applause

By Nevil Hunt, Ottawa Community News, November 1, 2017

Staff at the province’s much-maligned hydro system has put forward a compromise in north Kanata that may set a precedent for Ontario.

Hydro One has decided to talk with residents with homes adjacent to the hydro corridor that separates Beaverbrook and Kanata Lakes. The conversation will include the future of the vegetation near the hydro wires.

In the past, provincial residents have been bystanders when hydro crews arrive and clear-cut all trees and plants in power line corridors.
