A three piece set?

Today, at 2:30, Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources Minister Blair Lekstrom is scheduled to make "an important announcement regarding the future of clean energy in British Columbia." This, according to a media advisory distribute this morning. We don't know what's going to be in that announcement. But what we do know is stakeholders have been speculating for months about major structural changes to BC Hydro Corp. and the British Columbia Transmission Corp. Here's some possibilities that have been floated:

* BCTC is merged back into BC Hydro;
* BCTC is merged back into BC Hydro, with BC Hydro's generation activities spun off into a separate Crown corporation; or
* BC Hydro's generation activities are spun off into a separate Crown corporation.

Whether any of that happens today, remains to be seen.
