Finally… Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne has acknowledged that hydro rates are out of control.
In the wake of last week’s by-election loss in what was considered a Liberal stronghold, the Premier has admitted that the hydro rate issue probably played a part in the vote against the government.
Do you think ?
A Global News investigation revealed that we pay a hidden tax on our hydro bill called a Global Adjustment Fee.
For every $100 of usage, the Global Adjustment Fee is about $77; that means that we’re paying $100 when we really only used about $23 worth of electricity !
That hidden tax that we pay every month is to fund the government’s misguided Green Energy Act, which has become another financial sinkhole for Ontario taxpayers.
I don’t know why it took a by-election loss for the Premier to come to the conclusion that hydro rates have reached a crisis level in Ontario.
But now that she see’s the light, we need to know what the government plans to do about it.
We don’t need anymore political spin, like the report last week that told us that our energy costs were ‘competitive’ with most other regions.
We need to deal with cold, hard facts.
Ontario’s all in cost of hydro is the largest in North America.
Ontario taxpayers want that fixed… now !
