This picture makes me smirk.
Manitoba Hydro has placed this billboard on St. Mary's Road here in Winnipeg. The propeller spins 24/7.
Makes me wonder how much energy that electric motor uses.
And then I see their TV ad featuring a species of sturgeon that's been around since the dinosaurs' time. Manitoba Hydro is taking steps to study this fish's habitat so as not to cause it to go extinct. A noble cause? Sure, I guess. Do I want my hydro rates artificially high so some grad students can build aquariums? Not really.
