Brockville - Aug. 9, 2011 - Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark has called on Dalton McGuinty to stop thumbing his nose at Ontario families and instead give them the choice they deserve between his expensive energy experiments and sweetheart Samsung deal or relief for families with Tim Hudak and the Ontario PC Party.

Earlier this year, Energy Minister Brad Duguid misled voters and said it would cost too much to get out of Dalton’s sweetheart Samsung deal. But when the Liberals finally released the deal this week we learned we could have got out of the deal for nothing. However, last week Dalton McGuinty thumbed his nose at Ontario families and changed all that when he secretly changed the contracts to make it more expensive for families to cancel the Samsung deal and secretly pushed through 1,800 other projects. Dalton McGuinty is trying to cement his legacy: making life unaffordable for Ontario families.

This latest move is an insult to Ontario families who are already paying skyrocketing hydro bills. Under Dalton McGuinty hydro rates have skyrocketed by 84% - a whopping 150% if you have one of Dalton McGuinty’s mandatory smart meter tax machines. On October 6th Ontario families face a clear choice between more skyrocketing hydro bills with Dalton McGuinty, or relief on their hydro bills from Tim Hudak and the Ontario PC Party.

“It is outrageous that Dalton McGuinty is thumbing his nose at Ontario families who already cannot afford his expensive energy experiments. Ontario families cannot afford Dalton McGuinty’s Samsung deal and FIT contracts. That’s why Tim Hudak and the Ontario PC Party are offering families relief on October 6th,” said MPP Clark.

“On October 6th Ontario families have a chance to thumb their nose at Dalton McGuinty when they face a clear choice between Dalton McGuinty’s endless hydro hikes, or Tim Hudak and the Ontario PC Party who will give families relief.”

QUICK FACTS:

  • Sections 14.2 (c) and 14.3 (c) of the original Samsung deal says that Ontario can terminate the agreement without penalty if the foreign multinational conglomerate is unable to fulfill its contractual obligations by January 20, 2012 - three months after the next provincial election.

  • Section 18 of the amended Samsung deal gives the foreign multinational conglomerate an extra year to fulfill its contractual obligations.

  • Annual electricity bills are expected to increase by $732 over the next four years as a result of Dalton McGuinty’s HST, smart meter tax machine implementation, and other rate increases. (Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters)

    Tim Hudak and the Ontario PC Party will give families $275 in immediate relief on their hydro bills by:

  • Removing the provincial portion of the HST from residential hydro bills.

  • Removing the provincial portion of the HST from every home heating bill, including natural gas, home heating oil and propane

  • Removing the so-called “Debt Retirement Charge” from residential hydro bills
