Concerns over Nova Scotia Power

Chris d'Entremont - Darrell Dexter - Stephen McNeil

It's not exactly a banner week for the province's key utility Nova Scotia Power.

Last Tuesday NSP filed for rate increases over the next two years.

We have since discovered just how much senior execs have been pocketing in salaries and bonuses.

For example, the president of the company Rob Bennett made more than 1-million dollars, a 23 percent increase over the previous year. The head of N-S-P's parent company Emera made triple that.

If that weren't enough, yesterday we reported Emera threw senior management a lavish party at a waterfront restaurant, complete with two bands and a comedian.

Conservative MLA Chris d'Entremont brought that issue to the floor of the legislature today.
