_ (press release) _ Osgoode Councillor George Darouze launched a petition today urging the Ontario Government to harmonize hydro rates in Ottawa.
45,000 Ottawa residents are Hydro One customers, paying up to 30% more in hydro rates compared to their neighbours under Hydro Ottawa. This petition aims to bring fair hydro rates for these Hydro One customers living in the City of Ottawa. Councillor Darouze believes that good business is a fair business, “if Wal-Mart can price match, why can’t Hydro One”.
The Legislative Assembly of Ontario only accepts original signatures for petition submissions. As such, supportive Ottawa residents can sign the petition at various locations across the city or print a copy at home for friends, family and colleagues. Original hard copies can be mailed or delivered to either of Councillor Darouze’s offices.
