Question / Comment:

Guelph Hydro should remain in community hands and not to be sold or merged. Guelph Hydro is the perfect size and would be put at risk if merged into a larger utility; it could then be sold and merged.

Response:

As part of a merger with Alectra, Guelph would have a minority share, alongside other municipal shareholders.

All Alectra’s shareholders are publicly-owned and there is no reason to speculate about privatization at this time.

Guelph would be part owner of the merged utility, and the shareholder agreement provides certain minority shareholder protections.
