Doug Ford scrapping rate protection for more than 325,000 Ontario hydro customers
Global News January 22, 2019
Premier Doug Ford’s government is scrapping legislation that aims to regulate the price of electricity for more than 325,000 hydro customers in Ontario. The move has sparked fear among low-income advocates, tenants and condo owners that electricity costs could rise for anyone who pays for their hydro through a sub-metering company.
This policy seems to be running counter to the promise to reduce hydro rates for families.
