Hydro One Shares Begin Trading on TSX Today
It’s being called one of Canada’s largest initial public offerings in 15 years.

The sale of 81.1 million shares, priced at $20.50 each is the first step in the government’s plan to gradually part ways with 60 per cent of the utility. The grits claim they can use the $1.66 billion they get from the sale to fund transit and infrastructure projects in Ontario.
Conservatives Prepare to Pick Interim Leader
