Ontario and Quebec are in the midst of working out a 20-year deal that would see Quebec provide Ontario with power.

The Ontario Energy Association has voiced their displeasure with current talks between the provinces on a proposed 20-year plan to have Quebec provide Ontario with 8 terawatt hours annually starting in 2018.

OEA President and CEO Vince Brescia says the fact discussions have been behind closed doors is disappointing, and the current talks lack a competitive process to involve other possible interested suitors.

Timmins-James Bay MPP Gilles Bisson says building a further connection to Quebec is a step forward, but the current cost issues for citizens will remain unsolved.

Bisson says the real issue of overproduction still remains unsolved.

A fully developed draft agreement regarding the 20-year plan will be released by Quebec Hydro and Ontario Hydro in the coming weeks.
