Finance committee  I just want to show there are two thumbs up.

December 6th, 2007Committee meeting

Francis Bradley

Finance committee  A tight answer would be that there is a huge challenge. Whether it's through changes to the capital cost allowance or otherwise, anything that will allow us to put in the infrastructure that's going to be required to make sure we're able to support the economy is welcome.

December 6th, 2007Committee meeting

Francis Bradley

Finance committee  Yes, that's one very important thing and that reduces the overall cost to the system and the cost to the customer. When you're able to shave that peak and fill the valley, that's one piece. The second piece is because there's a greater interaction with the customer, the customer

Finance committee  Regardless of what the government of the day opts to call its energy efficiency program--because we have seen some changes in that--the fact that those programs are in place is important. It's something we feel is significant for the customer and that the customer expects. We do

December 6th, 2007Committee meeting

Francis Bradley

Finance committee  Thank you very much for the question. We have been asking about CCA rates for smart meters and for advanced metering infrastructure for a couple of years. And while on the surface it appears to be an incentive rate, the more I've looked at these specific issues, the more it's lo

December 6th, 2007Committee meeting

Francis Bradley

Finance committee  Thank you, Mr. Chairman. The Canadian Electricity Association is the national voice of the electricity industry in Canada. Our members represent the whole value chain of the industry, from the production of electricity to the distribution to clients. The electricity system is c

Public Safety committee  If I may, at the beginning of your comments you asked us to make sure, if we have any changes to Bill C-12, that we propose them. Things can always be improved, but specifically Bill C-12 has the one piece that we want. Perhaps members of this committee and other committees are

October 26th, 2006Committee meeting

Francis Bradley

Public Safety committee  It's not something we've looked at and have specifically identified. Mind you, it's not our responsibility to assess how effectively the federal government protects its own assets. Our specific concern on this piece of legislation, Bill C-12, is on the protection of the informati

October 26th, 2006Committee meeting

Francis Bradley

Public Safety committee  The term in French is les champs de comp├ętences; it's which level of government has authority over what things. I mentioned in my opening comments that on the electricity side this has been one of the difficulties we've had. While in the United States they're primarily federally

October 26th, 2006Committee meeting

Francis Bradley

Public Safety committee  I'm not certain that I'd be able to comment upon either the federal government's ability or how it develops and delivers its own protection. Recognize that as an industry we're responsible for our protection; the federal government needs to be responsible for its own protection.

October 26th, 2006Committee meeting

Francis Bradley

Public Safety committee  We don't know and are in no position to be able to assess exactly what information is shared among countries, but we've seen over the past couple of years that the coordination is better between, for example, the Government of Canada, PSEPC, and Department of Homeland Security. I

October 26th, 2006Committee meeting

Francis Bradley

Public Safety committee  Thank you very much. That's an excellent question, and it actually relates to my previous answer as well. Because we get information through the electricity sector on a North American basis, we have previously gotten far more information and far better information from Homeland

October 26th, 2006Committee meeting

Francis Bradley

Public Safety committee  It would probably look something like what we're talking about in terms of the relationship of the information between our industry and government. It's going to require a definition of precisely what information will be required, what will be exchanged between the two partners,

October 26th, 2006Committee meeting

Francis Bradley

Public Safety committee  To provide more information?

October 26th, 2006Committee meeting

Francis Bradley

Public Safety committee  No, not yet. We're anticipating a requirement in the future. It does not yet apply to the electricity sector, but it will come the new year, yes.
