Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Hydro-Electric Development in Ontario: A History of Water-Power Administration, Under the Hydro-Electric Power, Commission of Ontario The story of the Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario should now be given to the world, if only because it has become the largest generator and distributor of electric energy in existence, and has already accomplished results worthy of a province whose hydraulic power resources are in some respects unique. To students of public affairs the record will be of peculiar value for another reason - that the principles upon which it has been evolved mark a new adventure in the field of economic legislation and because, among the municipalities comprised in the system, the co-operative plan of public ownership was developed in the face of the strongest body of private corporation interests ever arrayed against a public reform. No one will claim that the working of the Commission has been perfect - if it had attained perfection from the start it would have been superhuman - but its achievements cannot now be questioned, and they challenge comparison with privately owned public-service corporations either on the ground of efficiency or economy of administration. What of the future of the great water powers of Canada? What, especially, is to be done with the waters of the Niagara and the St. Lawrence? The plea for the preservation of the scenic beauty of Niagara Falls has for some years operated to check further diversions of water from the Falls for power purposes. Happily this plea has incidentally put a stop to the further exploitation of this power for private gain. But the Commission, in bringing cheap power and light to the communities in thousands of square miles of territory in Ontario, has created a new kind of vested interest in hydro-electric power - a vested interest which is the right and endowment of the humblest citizen and which aims at no advantage except the welfare of the whole people. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at This book is a reproduction of an important historical work.
