Hydro Costs Are Going To Bury Us

[ 0 ] June 19, 2015 |

This weekend rings in the bells of summer.  With it will come the need for air conditioning, fans and of course, the hydro to produce it. Whatever respite we may have gotten from the cold winter and those hydro bills is about to come full circle. Has Wynne and her gang made any attempt to […]

Has Anything Changed At Hydro One?

Has Anything Changed At Hydro One?

[ 0 ] June 11, 2015 |

After a particularly long and cold winter, many Ontarians are still trying to play catch-up on their electricity bills. Weeks after the Ombudsman’s report, nothing has changed for those who have laid complaints about Hydro and the problems with their bills. Wynne and company are now on summer break and thus are getting yet another […]

Well we knew it was coming. Ontario’s fire sale of our Hydro One and other hydro assets is a done deal. Poof. Gone. And so this is democracy, is it?  Frankly I have a lot of words for it, and none of them come close to the word democracy. I guess we shouldn’t be surprised […]

[ 0 ] April 5, 2015 |

This week, Interim Conservative Leader Jim Wilson had an interesting exchange with the Liberal Government, in the Legislature.  It pertains to the potential sale of Hydro assets and a something called the Electricity Act.  It’s a law that requires any money received from a Hydro sale asset to be directly applied to any electricity liability […]

Taxes And Electricity Costs Are Crippling Ontarians.

Taxes And Electricity Costs Are Crippling Ontarians.

Randel Denley’s column in the Ottawa Citizen makes a good argument for a flat tax. Within that article, there is something I don’t think most Ontarians know.  I certainly didn’t. In Alberta, people pay no provincial taxes on their first $18,214 of income. In Ontario, only $9,863 is sheltered from tax. Considering that the personal exemption […]

Hydro Is A Basic Necessity.

Hydro Is A Basic Necessity.

Canadians have had a reputation of being easy to push over. Knowing that, you have to hand it to Quebec.  They are planning a Hydro push back and aren’t afraid to get creative, to get their point across. This story came across my desk today and I admit it – I smiled. Hydro-Québec clients plan blackout protest […]

Another week in Wynne’s Ontario, another bunch of shake your head in disgust moments… First, Wynne is still trying to shove that disgusting Sex Ed Curriculum down parent’s throats. Good on the folks who took it upon themselves to take their protest to Kathleen Wynne. These folks get it.  You have to dog politicians.  If […]

You Call This Help Kilo-What Bob? Really?

So the Liberals are going to offer between a 10 and 50 dollar discount to people having issues with their hydro. But not everyone and not this year. In what can only be described as an obscene attempt to turn the page and change the narrative on their failed Green Energy experiment and Hydro utilities […]

Ontario Power Generation and Hydro One Pensions

Many Ontarians are still suffering from Hydro One sticker shock.  Their rates are outrageous.   Their service is a mess. If this was a public business, it would have been boycotted successfully and duly shamed by now.  Why?… because they just plain suck and continue to suck with the Liberal government’s blessing. Unfortunately though, we cannot […]

Falling Down the Ontario Rabbit Hole

Falling Down the Ontario Rabbit Hole

[ 0 ] March 23, 2015 |

Do you ever wonder if you’ve fallen down the “rabbit hole”? Post after post and story after story, the denominator is the same.  The bills that people are getting from their Hydro utility, are completely out of control. The prices we are paying for hydro, plus the added costs – delivery, HST, debt reduction – […]
