Randy Pettapiece has delivered 50 petitions to the legislature.

They’re in regards to the skyrocketing hydro rates in Ontario.  The Perth-Wellington MPP started the petition in April.

It calls for the government to adopt policies immediately that ensure affordable and reliable energy.  Just days after the petition was originally released rates for on-peak hydro jumped 15 percent.

Pettapiece says electricity rates have tripled and hydro bills are up 56 per cent since the Liberals took office.  He calls that “completely unacceptable.”

The government now has 24 legislative business days to provide a response to the petitions.  In the meantime anyone interested in filling out a petition can do so at this website.
