On Tuesday, my colleagues at the Toronto Sun heard about a woman who got up early every morning this past summer just to go sit in a nearby air-conditioned mall. A neighbour offered to buy her an air conditioner for her home, but she politely declined. She just couldn’t afford the electricity to run it.
In the last seven years, since the Ontario Liberals began pushing “green” energy, the cost of electricity has almost doubled. This year, the average family’s bill has gone up by another $50 a month – some claim up to $100 – a month!
