From your first link we find:

"... Canada is one of the biggest power users in the world — due in large part to home heating demands ..."


Here in the USA we are energy conscious and making great strides to reduce wasteful energy usage and improve efficiency. However, Canada is the poster child of a country that squanders energy because it is cheap energy. Heating homes with electricity in the cold North is really something. They could become more efficient, add more transmission lines and become less dependent on construction of natural gas and nuclear power plants.
