Title
Les influences transnationales sur la nationalisation de l’électricité au Québec (1934-1963)
Abstract
The author argues that it was transnational forces that led to the nationalization of electricity in Quebec. In opposition to the traditional narrative that sees the nationalization in Quebec as a product of local incentives, the author looks at transnational undertakings that he believes were as important for the realization of the project. Specifically, he examines the nationalization of electricity in Ontario, in the Tennessee Valley and in France, and the links between them and with Quebec. He argues that the nationalization of electricity in Ontario in 1906 and in the Tennessee Valley in 1933 were key for the nationalization of the Montreal Light, Heat & Power Company in 1944 under the newly enacted Hydro Quebec, and how the nationalisation of electricity in Ontario, United States and France were influential in the nationalization of all the electric companies in Quebec in 1963 under an expanded Hydro Quebec. Most of the privately-owned electric companies that were nationalized were owned by Anglophones.
