Candidates Talk Hydro

 People in the region want to see Hydro rates lowered.

That was a resounding theme during a candidates forum yesterday afternoon in Kenora.

NDP MPP Sarah Campbell says her party will take immediate actions by eliminating the HST on bills along with the Debt Retirement Charge.

Campbell also highlighted plans to merge 4 power agencies into one.

Anthony Leek with the Liberal party also spoke of cost savings measures on your bill including the Low Income Energy Assistance Program, Northern Ontario Energy Credit, and the 10 percent Ontario Clean Energy Credit.

PC candidate Randy Nickle says their plan focuses on stopping power subsidies, eliminating bureaucracies, and and partnering with Manitoba Hydro.
