If we depart from the Trump-style simple-mindedness and contemplate reality for a moment, that first act will actually require several steps to complete. As a minimum, these will involve:
- Asking the Board of Hydro One to fire the CEO.
- Taking steps to fire the Board members if they fail to comply.
- Appointing a new Board.
- Asking the new Board (presumably with more success this time) to fire the CEO.
- Paying an estimated $10 million severance package to the fired CEO.
- Hiring a new CEO (at a salary less than $6 million one assumes).
- Figuring out how to reduce electricity costs when the new CEO heads up an agency responsible for the transmission of energy, not its production.
