THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO   ---   December 5, 2014  ---  The Liberals claim Ontario,s hydro rates are competitive but they remain the highest in North America.  I am going to give you High Hydro Ratesa few examples of hydro rates from British Columbia , Manitoba and Quebec .

  • In  B.C  their price  is 10 cents per KWH and there only service fee is $6.81 cents
  • In Manitoba their price is 7.1 cents per KWH and there only service fee is $7.38 cents
  • Quebec,s hydro prices are about the same as Manitoba prices.

I will give you a example what this means if you had a hydro bill in Ontario of $ 681.00
including all of our service charges per month.

In B.C your total bill would be $ 337.00 including their service charge half the price
In Manitoba the same bill would be $ 243.00 including their service charge just over a third of the price and once again Quebec,s total bill would comparable to Manitoba.

The Liberal,s still maintain Ontario is very competitive because they offer certain companies a 50% discount on their rates which in return means every body else is paying for this on there bill every single Month.

Bob Chiareli States in one instance alone a gold mine in Ontario saved 20 million dollars
alone this year.

The Standing Committee on Estimates continues with Committee Lead MPP Randy Hillier questioning Minister of Energy Bob Chiarelli over the uncompetitive and rising energy rates in Ontario. Hillier compares the charges and rates that other Canadian Provinces have to illustrate how Ontarians are paying out of pocket for this government’s mismanagement of the grid.
