April 4, 2017 – CARP’s Wanda Morris, VP of Advocacy met with MPP Todd Smith, Ontario PC’s Energy Critic and his policy team to talk about Hydro rates in Ontario.
Some of the key points made were:
• CARP members remain concerned about peak pricing, which many feel is discriminatory towards seniors who are typically at home during peak pricing times
• While CARP members were pleased with the rate reductions, a number of CARP members expressed concern that the Liberal government is unduly burdening future generations with deferred costs
• PC Finance Critic, Vic Fideli who was also in attendance indicated reductions in rates announced by Premier Wynne would not be reversed by a future PC government
