    Worked as an electrician for the family business from the time I was 16 to 33 years old. Started work as a lineman a little over four years ago. I still have a cube van and do some electrical work on the side, but I don't make much time for that anymore.

    So, journeyman lineman and master electrician. I can get the electricity from the substation to the blender.

    As a kid, I always wanted to be an electrician. I was fascinated with electricity. I am only now learning how to wire things (outlets, lights, panel, etc). I certainly admire what you guys do. Does your employer purchase electricity from Hydro Quebec?

    I'm not sure, but I think we do buy some power from Hydro Quebec.
