Ontario has fastest-rising hydro prices in country: Study

TORONTO – Ontario has had the fastest-rising electricity prices and its city dwellers paid some of the highest hydro bills in Canada over the past decade, a new Fraser Institute report found.

This year, the Kathleen Wynne government launched its “Fair Hydro Plan” which promises to reduce residential hydro bills by an average of 25%.

Kenneth Green, co-author of Evaluating Electricity Price Growth in Ontario, said the provincial government has just covered up serious problems in the system by shifting the cost onto taxpayers and future hydro bills.

          It sure is, but only applies to refugees and asylum seekers and immigrants who come here with not enough money to support themselves!

    Hydro One just bought a utility in the States. Where did they get the money for that? And Wynne has paid billions to the States to take our hydro, and is now building a hydro line under Lake Erie, so we can pay them more money to take our hydro. Meanwhile we have ugly wind turbines all over rural Ontario. But the morons in Ontario don’t seem to care, as her poll numbers are going up.

    The Liberal Party whether provincially or federally, always screws things up. The media is now reporting that feminist Trudeau’s choice for Governor General, is now going to court next week to get any documents related to her assault charges sealed. She is going to make a great GG.

    Bird blenders. 10 years from now these things will be monuments reminding us of the stupidity of the liberals.

    Dad what is that… Son that one is called the Wynne shaft.

    I don’t understand why her office hasn’t been stormed and she hasn’t been run out on a rail.

  • People voted for this.

    Toronto has the highest rates. It serves the stupid bastards right, and dickhead John Tory is trying to get the rest of us to pay for To’s screw ups.
