Panic in Kathleen Wynne’s government over rising electricity bills

In July, Ontario Energy Minister Glenn Thibeault was pressed by Shirlee Engel of Global TV on the rising cost of electricity bills. “While I’m still not using the word crisis,” said Thibeault, “I know it’s important. For one family if it’s a hundred bucks out of their own pocket that’s a crisis for them and I get that.”

In September Premier Wynne mentioned the word “hydro” at an international plowing match, and was instantly booed.

Now it appears we have a government in a panic mode trying to deal with a crisis of its own making.
