TORONTO, Sept. 19, 2011 /CNW/ - Tim Hudak's campaign advisors are in
full panic mode after Tim Hudak revealed his plan to increase
electricity rates by 44% during the times families use electricity
most. According to the Ontario Energy Board, fully 64% of all
residential electricity is consumed during off-peak periods.
So panicky are the PCs that they now claim their "leader" got it wrong
this morning when he said the following about his pricing plan:
"The flat rate is simply set as an average of the other rates."
(Media scrum, September 19, 2011)
In response, the PC campaign issued a release undercutting Hudak's
answer and referring to sections of their platform that simply don't exist.
Nowhere in their platform will you find the option for people to simply
"remain on the current flat rate that they are on."
