Hudak endorses water power imports from Quebec

In a speech to the Association of Power Producers of Ontario last week, Opposition Leader Tim Hudak endorsed importing water power from Quebec to lower our electricity bills. Hydro-electric imports from Quebec would cost Ontarians just 5.8 cents a kWh, vs. new nuclear which would cost us 19-37 cents per kWh.

During the recent provincial election, hydro-electric imports were endorsed by NDP Leader Andrea Horwath and Green Party Leader Mike Schreiner.

By importing water power from Quebec and by developing our huge, untapped energy efficiency potential (Ontario’s energy consumption per person is 50% higher than New York State’s), we can move our great province towards a renewable electricity future and lower our energy bills.

Please email Energy Minister Chris Bentley (and cc me) and ask him to join his colleagues in the other 3 parties in supporting the import of water power from Quebec.

Thank you.
