(QUEEN'S PARK) Randy Hillier, MPP for Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington, is hopeful that Hydro One is punished appropriately for misleading both consumers and Legislators.
"Whether Hydro One is found in contempt by the Legislature, or investigated and potentially charged by the OPP," said Hillier. "All that matters is that they are dealt with swiftly and appropriately given the troubling details uncovered in the Ombudsman report."
On Monday, the Ontario Ombudsman released his latest report that she'd disturbing details of how Hydro One was intentionally misleading the Government over the scope of their significant billing problems. This week the Speaker of the Legislature has been asked to rule on whether or not Hydro One should be held in contempt of the House, and the OPP has been asked to investigate any criminal wrongdoings for failing to meet Hydro One's statutory obligations.
"Hydro One has not only mislead all Members of the Legislature, but they continue to abuse the trust of their customers. It's time this mess is cleaned up one way or another."
