TORONTO, July 26, 2013 /CNW/ - Today the Ontario Energy Board named Glenn Leslie as the new Chair of the Market Surveillance Panel (MSP) and Steve Dorey as a new Panel member effective August 6, 2013.

The MSP monitors the province's electricity markets on a daily basis to identify inappropriate or irregular activities that can have a negative impact on market efficiency or effective competition. The Panel may also identify actual or potential flaws and inefficiencies in the market rules.
