Premier Kathleen Wynne says Ontario’s expensive energy rates can be traced back to former Premier Mike Harris.
During a stop in North Bay, Wynne said when the Liberals took power in 2003, they inherited a degraded generating system from the Tories.
She says that forced the Liberals to create 10-thousand kilometres of new transmission lines.
But, Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli says we have the highest power rates in North America because of Liberal scandals and their Green Energy Act.
Fedeli says the Liberals promised their energy policies would increase rates by only one percent, but adds that’s not what happened.
Fedeli says blaming a Premier who was first elected 21 years ago is another example of Wynne refusing to take responsibility for her actions.
