WATCH: Opposition parties not happy with energy plan

Both NDP and Tories scoff at rate increases and lack of details.

The energy plan isn't worth the paper it's written on, according to Tory Energy Critic Lisa MacLeod.

She says it's a short-term vision and was brought out to distract the public from the premier's appearance Tuesday at the hearings looking into the gas plant cancellations.

It will be Kathleen Wynne's second time testifying.

MacLeod says the last long-term energy plan proves the Liberals are ready to change things up when convenient. She points to the $1 billion Mississauga and Oakville gas plant cancellations.

She wants details of the plan that would offer incentives to those who make energy efficient renovations. MacLeod wants to know how the province is going to pay for the program and if all ratepayers will have to chip in.

Meantime, NDP leader Andrea Horwath says Ontarians are now stuck with some of teh highest electricity rates in the country.

Horwath says the plan is "unacceptable" and "just doesn't cut it." She says Ontarians deserve better.

She says her party will reveal its energy ideas in the months to come.
