Province to Merge Cap-And-Trade Fees With Delivery Costs on Hydro Bills

Opposition Says Liberals Are Trying to Bury The Evidence

If you’re looking for a little clarity on your hydro bill, you’re going to have to look harder. The Ontario Energy Board has decided charges related to the liberal government’s Cap-and-Trade system will not appear on a separate line on your bill. The fee will instead be included on the “delivery” section of the bill. The Liberals introduced this system as a means to fight climate change, but Opposition members are calling the system a cash grab, and in not including a separate entry on your bill about it, they’re saying the Liberals are trying to bury the evidence.
