ontario hydro bills

The 2017 Ontario Budget has suggested some proposals which are expected to have substantial effects on the lives of Ontarians. This budget is a balanced budget and this trend of a balanced budget is expected to continue for the next two years.
There is now officially a rap song for everything.
The Liberal Party's hydro subsidy smacks of desperation. It's bad policy, and playing politics over rising electricity prices is going to be expensive. Just like with the gas plant scandal, the Liberals are putting their political self-interest ahead of good public policy. They are trying to buy your vote with your money. It is going to cost us big time -- over $1 billion a year to be exact.
The increases to our energy bills alone over the next five years are greater than the amount of income tax paid by a minimum wage earner in Ontario. The Wynne government should think about the people who suffer the most from irresponsible government decisions.
