Meeting planned over Hydro privatization


Local homeowners concerned about the proposed privatization of Ontario Hydro are invited to attend a meeting here Thursday to discuss the issue.

The meeting, slated for 8-9:30 p.m. at the Legion, is being hosted by the Ontario Electricity Coalition—a group trying to prevent Ontario power from being sold to private companies.

Paul Kahnert of the coalition will make a presentation about what people can do to stop the opening of the electricity market, slated to take effect May 1.

Concerns over higher hydro rates, more blackouts, and hurting the economy resulting from the deregulation of Ontario Hydro are among the issues that will be raised at Thursday’s meeting.
