A National Grid – An Evolutionary Approach

At present, each province or territory has built its electrical transmission system to meet its own needs. However, when we step back and look at our transmission system as a nation rather than as a collection of provinces, it is clear that we have failed to make full use of the resources we have available. We don't need to build a complete cross-country transmission line as a single project, but we do have the opportunity to strengthen interconnecting tie-lines between provinces and across provinces one at a time where we can demonstrate economic benefit.
