I would hope that Canada wakes up and installs the type of trip-switch that Quebec has in place, that shuts down the connection to the U.S. in the event the U.S. system goes down. They kept their lights on while most of us were in the dark.

Ontario has some deregulated electricity industries funded by public money, and Dalton McGuinty is being pressured to close these markets. (Put in place by the Tories, of course.)
