TV, is Hydro going to put the power lines underground? It's so funny how there's still little pockets with above-ground lines all around downtown, mostly in Exchange.

Usually Manitoba Hydro won't pay to place existing services underground on their own due to the expense.

I know that I have seen a clause in city development/rezoning agreements that existing o/h lines are to be placed underground at the developers expense. And if there are Telco and Cable on the pole the developer has to pay for those to be moved as well.
