Where’s Wynne on rising hydro rates?

The question is simple. It was asked by 200 protesters at Queen’s Park Wednesday on behalf of millions of Ontarians who want to know the answer.

What is Premier Kathleen Wynne going to do about skyrocketing electricity rates caused by Liberal incompetence on the hydro file?

Right now, Ontarians are caught in the middle of a 42% jump in hydro rates from 2014 to 2018 that is driving up to 700,000 low-income households into energy poverty, where families spend at least 10% of their income simply powering their homes.

Industrial hydro users face a 33% hike, partly responsible for the loss of 300,000 manufacturing jobs.
