Ontarians need a transparent and independent review of Darlington business case: Statement by NDP Energy Critic Peter Tabuns

'The Liberal government shouldn’t keep the people of Ontario in the dark when it comes to the Darlington refurbishment. This government has not provided a proper business case that clearly and transparently examines the costs, benefits and risks of this project. This project needs a transparent and independent review. 

Ontarians have good reason to be disappointed in the Liberal government’s handling of the energy file. From the gas plants scandal to the sell-off of Hydro One, time and time again the Liberals have shown they can’t be trusted to stand up for Ontarians. 

Instead, we are seeing rates go up again, Ontario families that will be left with the bill and with no clear rationale as to why this is the best way to go forward.”
