NDP MPP Gretzky demands Premier make affordable electricity her New Year’s resolution

During the last question period of the fall sitting, Windsor West NDP MPP Lisa Gretzky demanded that the Premier make electricity more affordable and stop the sell-off of Hydro One in the New Year.

“While this government sits idly by and makes excuses, the rising price for electricity continues to make life more difficult for our most vulnerable citizens,” said Gretzky. “The Downtown Mission in Windsor used to serve about 1100 people a month, now they serve 800 a week—it seems this is the only business that expands as hydro prices soar.” 

Gretzky listed a number of businesses, not-for-profits, and charities that are struggling to provide services to clients and residents. She called on the government to do more to help them. 

“While businesses, charities and non-profits are doing all they can, this government continues to make life more difficult,” said Gretzky. “Will the Premier make providing real relief from hydro bills and stopping any further sell-off of Hydro One her New Year’s resolution in 2017?”
