Today's Ontario throne speech announced plans to rebate the 8% provincial HST on hydro bills.
Why aren't we happy?
Because hydro bills are growing at a rate of 8% per year! And because the carbon tax will come into effect the exact same time as your hydro rebate, and will eat up any savings you would have seen!
Kathleen Wynne needed to provide real solutions to soaring hydro rates. This rebate provides her some political relief, but no real relief for consumers.
