In this survey there were an inordinate number of
multiple votes with a comment that indicated anger and/or frustration.
We counted only one vote whether No or Yes.
Multiple voting ....
hmmmm. You can express your opinion easily in the comments without
trying to influence the vote one way or another. Most people just
vote and don't comment.
Are you willing to pay more

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