The Tories aren't buying that rate-payers will only take a $1-$2 hit on their electricity bills because of the Mississauga and Oakville gas plant cancellations.
Tory energy Critic Lisa MacLeod says that's why she wants the Liberal government to provide the committee overseeing hearings into the matter any documents that could explain how this could hurt consumers.
MacLeod says she was disheartened when she heard the figure, underlining the claim is "arrogant" and "unbelievable." She adds it provided little comfort to those with skyrocketing electricity bills.
Both the Ontario Power Authority and Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli spoke to the figure.
Chiarelli says MacLeod is in the middle of a "wish hunt" because she wants her ideas to be true.
He says she is choosing to misconstrue the numbers.
The Mississauga and Oakville cancellations are expected to cost tax- and rate-payers $1.1 billion.
