October 19th was a significant day for everyone that signed my Fair Hydro Petition. I drove down to Queen’s Park in Toronto to meet with MPP Lisa MacLeod and personally deliver the 8,500 signatures on the petition to be tabled at the Ontario Legislature.
After introducing the Fair Hydro for Ottawa Petition to the House, MPP Lisa MacLeod officially tabled the petition. In added significance, the Page that brought the petition from Ms MacLeod’s desk was a local student all the way from Greely, Dylan, who is currently experiencing what it is like to be a Page.
I also had the opportunity to meet the Energy Minister and the NDP Energy Critic and to bring to their attention the significance of this petition and what it means to Ottawa residents on Hydro One. All the countless hours and huge effort put forth by my staff, the businesses and offices that hosted the petition and you the residents that took time to make your way to sign the petition in person all came together.
On the drive down and the drive back I was busy working away doing countless interviews to bring widespread attention of the price disparity between Hydro One and Hydro Ottawa.
Again, thank you to each and every one of you that signed and helped to show our discontent with Hydro One. Now we will have to wait 24 sitting days to hear a response from the Energy Minster.
