It looks like somebody tried to damage power lines from Quebec to New York State. Provincial Police are investigating the suspicious substances found at the site.
Montreal -- Quebec provincial police are investigating suspicious material found near a damaged hydroelectric tower that carries power to the United States.

A spokesman for the Sûreté du Québec said yesterday that the site in Saint-Herménégilde, 15 kilometres from the U.S. border, was secured by explosives experts and the substances are being analyzed.

The investigation has been referred to the force's terrorism unit, police said.

FYI, Quebec has massive hydro-electric developments in the northern part of the Province and supplies substantial amounts of electricity to the US North East.

Attacking the power grid is one type of attack that we fear, due to its vulnerability and virtual impossibility of guarding. Its not clear why a single isolated attack would be made, unless its a trial effort.
