Pettapiece launches petition to reduce hydro rates

Randy Pettapiece wants hydro rates lowered.

He’s started a petition aimed at that goal.

This comes after the Liberal government’s recent announcement that hydro bills will go up an average of $137 next year.

Pettapiece says the government’s decision to sell off a large chunk of Hydro One won’t help the issue:

He adds people are already having a hard time paying the current rates:

The Perth-Wellington MPP says electricity rates have tripled since the Liberals took office.

The petition calls for the government to immediately adopt policies that stop hydro bills from skyrocketing.
