One year after the landmark court victory that helped stop the privatization of Hydro One, public power campaigners in Ontario are gearing up for a new round of activity.

“We have just sent 350,000 leaflets across the province exposing the premier’s bogus rate freeze and his plans to sell-off our generating stations,” says Paul Kahnert of the Ontario Electricity Coalition (OEC) and CUPE 1.

“Thanks to Mr. Eves, the hydro debt is growing, private electricity producers are making a fortune, conservation is on the back burner and we face the threat of blackouts again this summer.”

With an election likely within six months, the OEC is using the Hydro One anniversary to remind voters the Eves government continues to pursue a disastrous energy policy.

“Hydro One shows the people of Ontario it is possible to stop irresponsible actions by government, both in the courts and with grass roots campaigns. But the fight is far from over,” says National President Judy Darcy. “Eves is still pushing ahead with deregulation and privatization and it’s costing the people of Ontario a fortune. This will cost Eves the next election.”
