Letter: Look at the big picture
Re Don’t sell, letter to the editor, July 18
I agree with R. Stinson’s excellent letter in the Packet & Times with respect to the proposed sale of Orillia Power Distribution to Hydro One. I also agree with Frank Kehoe, Maurice McMillan and the many others who believe that selling Orillia’s distribution rights is unacceptable and outrageous.
In my opinion, a few people should not be allowed to make such major decisions on behalf of the 34,200 residents of the City of Orillia.
I hope that the councillors who seem to think that they made such a great decision will look at the bigger picture and decide not to sell this valuable asset and lose control over the distribution rates. I see that Hydro One has already published their proposed rate increases for the next few years.
