Cornwall - Apr. 17, 2015: The Government’s plan to sell 60% of Hydro One and direct the funds to infrastructure building is being challenged by opposition parties and major stakeholders as illegal. Once Hydro One is sold off, revenue from the sold-off components will no longer be available to service the $27 billion debt, driving up rates.

South Dundas - Apr. 14, 2015: One can easily argue that in 2015, we have one of the
most progressive, Liberal governments provincially in Ontario history.
Some in the province will wear that title as a badge of honour. The
badge of being a progressive is not what it was 100 years ago. The provincial PC’s have had their butts
