News Selling Hydro One isn’t the way to pay for roads, says Horwath SHARE ON: Taylor Ablett, staff Friday, Aug. 21st, 2015 Photo: Timmins-James Bay MP Charlie Angus, MPP Gilles Bisson, and provincial NDP leader Andrea Horwath speaking to local business owners about Hydro costs. Supplied by Taylor Ablett Ontario’s NDP leader is saying the sale of Hydro One is going to hurt taxpayers right across the province. Andrea Horwath is in Timmins today, talking about how the sale would raise our electricity costs by up to 70 per cent. Poor roads are a big issue in Timmins, but Horwath says selling hydro isn’t the way to pay for repairs. She says investing in infrastructure is necessary for families, but it is also going to benefit corporations, or the “big guys” as she calls them. She says they need to be paying higher corporate taxes to help fund upgrades. She says Kathleen Wynne should be embarrassed, being the only premier in Ontario’s history who can’t figure out how to fund infrastructure while keeping hydro public.
