Irvings into tidal energy

Now, this is a good idea for a number of reasons:

The owners of Canada’s largest oil refinery have been given approval for a study to harness the world’s highest tides as a source of power for generating electricity in Canadian waters off the Maine coast. Irving Oil will partner with Huntsman Marine Science Center of St. Andrews, New Brunswick, to research 11 sites on the Bay of Fundy for the potential of tidal power generation.
