Hydro sparks election debate, but parties’ promises don’t add up

The vast majority of Ontarians believed Wynne had sold off the generating assets of the old Ontario Hydro — the jewels of the Crown corporation, as opposed to mere poles and wires. Voters started to blame rising hydro prices on the sale — never mind that most hikes long predate privatization, and that the Ontario Energy Board alone determines rates. Amid the blunders and blunderbuss, the rival leaders can only offer competing panaceas: Ford will fire the Hydro One brass, Horwath will buy Hydro One back, Wynne will borrow more to shrink our bills.

None of it adds up. But in their zeal to secure power — political and electrical — each leader is taking take the path of least resistance on the campaign trail. It is up to each of us to educate ourselves on this issue and not be influenced by easy answers that are not feasible.

What on earth is the responsible Ontario voter to do?

Now, more than ever, it is vital for us to meet, come to know, and and talk with our candidates. We must question them to determine their position on issues that are important to us, and expect that they will be willing to listen to us as well. And we must follow their progress in the Legislature to ensure that they speak for us. MPPs are elected to represent us, and should not simply follow the dictates of their party leaders.
