(April 8, 2013) Report from the City Manager

Summary

This report recommends the adoption of an Amended and Restated Shareholder Direction for Toronto Hydro Corporation (THC) to update the reporting procedures and improve the accountability of the Corporation to the City.

 

Due to the large number of separate amendments to the document, it is recommended that City Council adopt the attached restated Shareholder Direction rather than considering each amendment separately. The attachments to this report should remain confidential as they involve the security of property of the City and its wholly-owned corporation.
