Sudbury MPP and Ontario Energy Minister Glenn Thibeault is calling on all Local Distribution Company’s to put an end to winter disconnections of electricity.
Thibeault says Greater Sudbury Hydro has already agreed to voluntarily stop all the winter disconnections.
The Energy Minister is also asking for opposition support to speed up the passage of Bill 27, the Burden Reduction Act. which would allow the Ontario Energy Board to strengthen rules governing disconnection.
Thibeault says at no point, under any circumstances, should a customer be put at risk over an electricity bill.
