    A 735 000-volt power line, which is believed to set a record in extra-high-voltage transmission, is being constructed this summer across the St. Lawrence River. By 1974, when three other similar transmission lines are scheduled for completion, Quebec's power availability for industrial development will thus be almost doubled. It is estimated that the finished enterprise will produce almost 6 milli... View full abstract»
