Time for a change in the ont government. Now the bill is on our children & grand children's backs

DOWN WITH THE TURBINES! That would be a real cost cut!
_______________________________
Now we pay our hydro bill with our taxes. The problem still exists. I don't see any effort to fix the overall waste in the system and administration. Green energy is still a disaster.
_______________________________
What are the benefits when Westario can't implement the 8% cut until July. How long will we have to wait for the 17% cut?
_______________________________

Kathleen is just robbing Peter to pay Paul. The insane cost of liberal mismanagement just got passed on to the next generation.

give with one hand and take back with the other.

just another liberal shell game that will haunt our grandchildren.

Not satisfied at all. Wynne is all smoke and mirrors. It's just a pre-election sham. It's pretty bad when most of my hydro bill is "delivery charge" and other miscellaneous charges. I have kept my usage to a minimum, and it's getting to the point to choose either hydro, or food. I hope she and the LIEberals get turfed on the next election.

Shell. Game
_______________________________
We are all going to pay for it in the long run. Short term gain for long term pain. There must be a better way.
_______________________________
This is a pathetic attempt by Wynne to become more popular and win the next election. And her greed for power has lead her to jeopardize the economic future of Ontario.. If Wynne is still the leader, Liberals will finish third in the next election.
_______________________________

It is peanuts and hardly makes a difference
_______________________________

Cuts don't fix the problem. The Liberals and the Green Energy Act are the problem!
_______________________________
This so called cut is simply a re-mortgage. If I purchase something on credit and my payments are $100 per month for 5 years are you implying that you can save money by making the payments $50. per month for 10 years! Must be the "new math". Remember people "THIS IS YOUR MONEY". The Lieberals are simply trying to buy your vote with your own money!

I reluctantly say YES that I am satisfied with the recent cut in hydro rates. However, what is going to happen when we have another provincial election? Will the next government party at that level continue to honor these reduced rate? Time will tell. The current government, both provincial and federal tend to forget about the most vulnerable members of society.
_______________________________
They are not cuts in Hydro rated they are deferrals that will cost more in the long run.
_______________________________
Smoke and mirrors, a sleazy election ploy
_______________________________

The Liberal governert of McGinty/Wynne have turned the Province into a debt ridden have not with their idiotic green agenda! They have destroyed hydro.
_______________________________

All we have done is lengthen the payback period. A short term gain for a long term pain. Nothing was fixed, just passed down for the next generation or government to fix.
_______________________________

Premier Wynne, is just using a bandaid to help for the moment. She needs to take the bull by the horn and get upper management salaries adjusted.and look at the whole picture. Hydro employees union and non union are part of the problem
_______________________________

The reduction is effectively been financed by a combination of tax and increased debt. So what we save on electricity we pay another way. So it's all smoke and mirrors!
_______________________________
This move by the Wynne government will only cost our children and grandchildren billions of dollars in interest in future years and is only putting more money into the pockets of all the Liberal wind companies. Also be prepared for more increased taxes and user fees.
_______________________________
It is just an election ploy.
_______________________________
All this is is another Lieberal scheme to buy votes..... they have made an extreme mess with the so called green energy scheme. They should be in jail - not looking for votes.
_______________________________
Just prolonging the agony of payment
_______________________________
Tried to comment but message was too long.....too little ...too late.
_______________________________

In my opinion, we should not be paying any taxes on hydro. At one time there was a big push to heat your home with electricity, costs have skyrocketed. we still have to cook our meals and do our laundry and some people just never ever get caught up.
_______________________________

The current Ontario government takes money (HST on the electric bill)from the public and then wants to give some of it back. Do these political idiots think we are all stupid? No, I'm not satisfied with recent cuts.
_______________________________

It just passes the debt down the road. At some point we will have to pay.
_______________________________
If it was not for the reckless McGinty and Wynne governments and their narrow minded ideas for Green we would not be in this fiasco. These two idiots alone have turned the Province of Ontario into have nots and are bankrupting the people. They alone are dumb and dumber!!!!!!
_______________________________

It's just a feel good move that will come back and bite us in the ass.
_______________________________

The Ontario Liberals need to go. Wynne is only trying to stay in power as the election looms. If she gets in again expect even more stupidity.
_______________________________
We just passed on billions in debt to be paid by future generations while our premier hopes to win a election. Their income will not afford to do so and not starve.
_______________________________
Instead of cutting the hydro cost they should eliminate the delivery charge. That is what is hurting rural customers the most.
_______________________________

They did not address the issues that led us to the high cost ,like the big boys wages ,the green energy act and the selling off some of the parts just to try and balance the books.
_______________________________
3 cents a kwh should be the maximum allowed.
_______________________________

Nuclear energy costs continue to skyrocket
_______________________________

The province produces so much power it almost gives it away to the US...I disagree with the US getting Ontario power cheaper than we are
_______________________________
This does not fix the problem with poor decisions made by all three provincial parties. The money will have to come from somewhere and other things gs like hospitals, schools, senior care etc will suffer
_______________________________

Its great to pay a fairer rate. Worried about massive increases after the 4-year promised term has ended though.
