TABUNS: Ontarians paying for Ford’s broken hydro promises
On Nov. 1, your electricity bill is going up. At a time of serious economic instability for families and small businesses, Premier Doug Ford is hiking the cost of electricity, once again breaking his promise to reduce Ontarians’ hydro bills by 12%. In an op-ed published here in recent days, Energy Minister Greg Rickford bemoans the privatized, expensive mess the Liberals made of the hydro system. It’s true – the Liberals put shareholders ahead of everyday people, and we’re paying a hefty price for it. But Rickford glosses over the fact that his own government hasn’t done a thing to fix the problems, and people are paying even more for that.
