Hydro customer debt and disconnections soar under Kathleen Wynne

New numbers posted by the Ontario Energy Board paint a painful picture of how hydro customers have fared under Kathleen Wynne’s government.

During the past four years, under Wynne’s watch, there’s been a 19% increase in residential hydro disconnections, a 28% increase in arrears and a 40% increase in customer debt owed to provincial electricity distributors.

    Praise Allah! We don’t need hydro in Islamic Ontario. Mohammad didn’t worry about hydro. Besides, California and Quebec need our cap and trade money.

    I suppose the people of Ontario can take some comfort in the knowledge that someday they will get to watch this Dyke get thrown off a high rooftop. Inshallah

    If for no other reason, this is why Wynne and her party have to go – “We have families who absolutely have to decide whether they can heat or eat.”

    Why does she have a hijab on? She has a face similar to a Muslim woman. What the hell is Ontario producing in women, now a days? I guess the old saying a horse is a horse of course, by looking at her face. Sorry I don’t mean to insult horses.

    Is anybody surprised at the increase in disconnections and arrears? Disastrous energy policies that drive the cost of electricity to beyond the means of ordinary families to pay will produce these results. Next up, some SJWs claiming the answer is to increase rates even more for the middle class to subsidize those for whom energy has become completely unaffordable thanks to the environmental delusions and eco-fascist behaviour of Ontario Liberal Party.
    Regular re-election of these delusional and incompetent clowns keeps me up at night, and I don’t even live in Ontario. It sends the message that we Canadians are too stupid to look out for our own best interests – that we are easily conned by virtue signalling tricksters – and that the future is going to be a lot nastier than the past.

    You guys have lots of timber. Use that for light and heat

      Plans are in the offing by Wynne to make heating from wood illegal in Ontario by 2022. That trial balloon went out a week ago.

      • DavidinNorthBurnaby

        There is a movement towards that happening here as well. The Eco freaks are going to have everyone freezing in the dark by the time they’re done. Well everyone except kooky Suzuki and Al Gore et al.

    The people of Ontario deserve a savior to end their suffering.
    Not another in a series of nincompoop insider VW leaders dredged up from the bowels of the nincompoop VW opposition parties to replace LVW-GLLKDW.

    Two things I find baffling in all of this, as a regular visitor to Canada (and Ontario in particular):

    1. You guys are ‘suffering’ under a massive hydro surplus, yet your electricity rates, in contravention of ever law of supply and demand, keep going UP.

    Of course I understand why, which leads me to…

    2. There is NO appetite, as far as can tell, by the people paying most of the freight to actually *do* something about this appalling state of affairs. No protests, not voting for anyone but the Liberals, etc. Just: “march us into the slaughterhouse and slit our throats because we’re good Canadians.”

    Trying to explain this situation to Ontarians (and remember, I’m American, so it’s automatically discounted about 90%, so I realize I’m spitting in the wind) I am struck with how little they understand or care, even though they regularly GROUSE about said hydro bills!

      Yes, but we have great homosexual parades.

      Canada sucks because socialism.

      • ECM

        Of course this is true, but the killer, for me, is that I just realized*, about 6-months ago, that the Liberal party are viewed as the center by most Canadians, which is absolute madness.

        *Yes, I’m slow.

          Canadians are so flipping stupid, most of them actually think they are superior to Americans because we don’t have your evil gun culture and black/white race problems. Canada is so “progressive”. /sarc

          • DavidinNorthBurnaby

            Don’t forget how we get bent over on taxes for a shity socialist Healthcare System. And get to pay for Al Ceebeera

    • Shebel

      Even Americans have been known to tell the Truth.
      Merry Christmas !
      We don’t sound very Christmasy. Do WE?
      hahaha–but– We are.

    Time to storm the Bastille. Off with her head.

  • DMB

    Not to worry folks we have the capacity to produce plenty of hydro especially on this snowy weekend which will hopefully drive down the cost of hydro. Oh wait!

    Note: On the bright side this is local, organic gluten free power. LOL!

    • Shebel

      YES !
