The Canadian Union of Public employees has announced its intention to take legal action against Premier Kathleen Wynne over the sale of Hydro One.
President Fred Hahn says the union didn’t take this decision lightly.
“No one in the Liberal party made mention of their plans to sell off our publicly owned hydro system in the last election, they simply had no mandate to do so.”
CUPE Ontario says it held off when the legislature was prorogued to see if there would be a change of course.
Hahn announced today that the attorney general has since been served with notice of the union’s intent to bring a legal suit against the Premier as well as the ministers of finance and energy for “misfeasance in public office.”
The Liberals have maintained that the money raised from the privatization of Hydro One is needed to fund public transit and infrastructure projects and address ongoing debt.
