A Statement from Ontario NDP Energy Critic Peter Tabuns
Posted May 8th, 2017 on Niagara At Large
Queen’s Park, Toronto – Ontario NDP Energy Critic Peter Tabuns issued the following statement about the further privatization of Hydro One.
“By giving up the province’s majority stake in Hydro One , Kathleen Wynne is doing even more damage to our hydro system. Her short-sighted sell off of Hydro One will drive up electricity bills for the residents, businesses and municipalities of our province.
this Monday, May 8th’s announcement shows that Premier Wynne and her Liberal government are still refusing to listen to the majority of Ontarians who say no to the privatization of their electricity system. Ontarians didn’t vote for this. Electricity isn’t a luxury. It shouldn’t be priced like one.
If elected in 2018 New Democrats will fix the electricity system broken by private power deals signed by Liberals and Conservatives, and put Hydro One back into public hands where it belongs, so that the benefits can help fund hospitals, schools and vital public services. ”
