How is it that Quebec's hydropower does not find its way to Ontario?


That is a really obvious and very good question, unfortunately I haven't lived in Ontario since 1968. I could only guess at the answer and probably be only partially right.

Guess 1: At the time when the US was looking for power to buy Ontario didn't need any so the infrastructure wasn't built?

Guess 2: .... I'm out of ideas.

Power is very much a provincial thing and perhaps there is a bit of Texas in Ontario?

Lastly it is possible there is animosity at provincial government level?

I do recall that when the big power outage happened (2008?) (triggered in the US) Ontario was hit hard but Quebec wasn't.

I'll see if anyone has any ideas on Canada Gen?
