Electricity prices have risen dramatically, especially in rural Ontario. I’ve spoken to farmers who can no longer afford to run electricity to the barns in the winter, and who must carry out buckets of water for their livestock. This looks like a return to the 1930s for some farmers, while others are now paying thousands of dollars a month for electricity. Meanwhile, a handful of corporations and banks appear to have profited handsomely from the sale of Hydro One.
