I wonder,Bait, if you have right. Does this not give a tax deduction to the company? Or is not a contribution by Nfld Power? They just collect and raise the money and pass it over. Nfld Power shoiuld publically clarify this. They certainly get good PR from it. Their words It "energized" us, makes a deliberate connection to the POWER company. Perhaps The RATE HIKE comming soon will ENERGIZE the customers, none of whom opposed the rate hikes. Nfld Power argued most all of their customers are so pleased that Nfld Power is doing all they can to address customers concerns about power costs. Timing is real good for a PR boast.

The way they are doing it now: NF Power takes customers money, passes it to government (via health care), government then receipts them for charitable donations, government takes taxpayers money and gives it back to NF Power in tax write offs. Something seems crooked here as the ordinary customer/taxpayer is paying twice. How about having the government pay for health care alone rather than budgeting for charitable contributions.
