On his first full day as premier, Brian Pallister ousted the NDP-appointed board of Manitoba Hydro.
The new chair of the board of directors is H. Sanford Riley and the vice-chair is Steve Kroft. The directors are David Brown, Earl Edmondson, Cliff Graydon, Jennefer Nepinak, Michael Pyle, Allen Snyder, Dayna Spiring and Dr. Annette Trimbee.
“We are proud to assemble a versatile and experienced group of executives who will bring valuable input to the direction of Manitoba Hydro,” Pallister said.
“It is a tremendous responsibility serving on this board as Manitoba Hydro endeavors to enhance energy service for the province and evaluates opportunities to employ renewable energy strategies.”
