The politics of power

On Tuesday, Renaissance Power Corp. made headlines when The Vancouver Sun's Scott Simpson reported on Anmore's efforts to generate clean electricity for their village by harnessing hydro, solar and wind energy. That project - which is being managed by Renaissance - is the result of "partnership involving all three levels of government." So it seems appropriate to mention that the company - like other independent power producers such as Plutonic Power Corp. Inc. and NaiKun Wind Development Inc. - has. Harper administration appointee and federal Conservative campaign worker Steve Simpson is Renaissance's government and community relations vice-president. And former provincial attorney general Geoff Plant chairs the company's board of directors. Fancy that!
