Hydro One goes dark

With the passage of the bizarrely named Building Ontario Up Act the day before the legislature adjourned for the summer on June 4, Premier Kathleen Wynne fixed her Hydro One problem.

Unfortunately, the public’s Hydro One problem just got a whole lot worse.

The omnibus legislation, also known as Bill 91, allows Wynne to sell 60% of Hydro One, a monopoly which controls 97% of the province’s electricity transmission system, to the private sector.

    What are the people of Ontario doing about it? It does not take a scholar to know if you sell 60% of something, then you do not have control of it. Mind you if 60% is sold to Liberals then they have control and the rest of Ontario is screwed. Why are more people not reading this site? There has to be something that could be done to make this Lieberal party to step aside for the better of this province or are we too stupid to figure this out?

      They will have de facto control since they are selling twenty percent to Hydro One employees.

    I am sure that this will enrich Ontario, or at least a handful of Liberal insiders.
