PCs criticize Ontario government approach to hydro rates

The Ontario Progressive Conservative leader is critical of the Liberal government’s planned hydro rebates, but even more so of its planned sell-off of Hydro One shares.

At Queen’s Park on Thursday, MPP Deborah Matthews defended Liberal plans to offer hydro rebates for Ontario’s urban and rural regions. PC Opposition leader Patrick Brown reiterated his position after Monday’s throne speech.

“For the last two days, I have said that if the Liberals actually wanted to get hydro rates under control, they should stop signing ludicrous contracts,” he said.
