Skeptical crowd wants 'Idaho first,' questions Avista sale to Canadian utility

June 18, 2018View for printing

North Idaho residents expressed deep suspicions Thursday night about the proposed sale of Avista Corp. to a Canadian utility partly owned by the government of Ontario.

"As an American citizen, I don't think it's good to have American infrastructure owned by a foreign entity," Summer Bushnell, a Post Falls resident, told the Idaho Public Utilities Commission.

Another speaker, Glenn Bledsoe of Rathdrum, said he advocated "Idaho First, America First. Keep foreign interests out of our utilities."
