Statement by Ontario NDP Energy Critic Peter Tabuns (MPP, Toronto-Danforth) regarding Liberal Party byelection radio ad

“Today, Kathleen Wynne and the Ontario Liberal Party released a radio ad ahead of the upcoming Whitby-Oshawa byelection. In it she states that the only way to reduce high electricity costs is to burn coal.

I find it rich coming from a Premier whose selloff of Hydro One will hurt Ontario families and businesses with higher rates and will remove from public hands one of the best tools we have to fight climate change through conservation.

I would suggest to the Premier that if she is unable to deliver clean, low-cost electricity to this province, she either stop the selloff of Hydro One or get out of the way and let someone else do the job.”
