Liberals under fire for ‘cooking’ Ontario’s books

The government of Ontario.

Ontario’s Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk revealed this week that Kathleen Wynne’s government hid the cost of its “Fair Hydro Plan” from taxpayers.

The way they did it has raised concerns that other governments across the country could follow suit and bury deficits.

Although ratepayers will get a temporary, 25% break over four years on their hydro bills, the plan will cost “up to $4 billion more than necessary” in interest, Lysyk said.
