Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli is pleased that new Tory leader Patrick Brown has let him stay on as finance critic. Fedeli says when the Legislature resumes this fall, one issue he won’t let up on is how high electricity rates are hurting everyone.
Fedeli says he got a call from his own mother complaining about high rates. Fedeli says sky-high power rates in Ontario coupled with red tape have resulted in some companies leaving the province.
Fedeli says that’s the case with a greenhouse company in Southern Ontario that wanted to double in size but instead left for Ohio. The Tory MPP says it’s these kind of policies that are hurting Ontario’s ability to grow.
