THUNDER BAY – Andrea Horwath, Leader of Ontario’s New Democrats was joined in Thunder Bay this morning by candidates Andrew Foulds and Mary Kozorys to talk about the NDP’s plan to put money back into the budgets of middle class families by taking the HST off hydro bills.

“Middle class families are getting squeezed like never before and nothing squeezes them harder than hydro bills. Taking the HST off hydro bills is a simple achievable step that will put money back into the pockets of every Ontario family and help make life more affordable,” said Horwath.

“An NDP government will take the provincial portion of the HST off of hydro bills starting in 2016 saving a typical Ontario family about $120 every year, says Horwath.

“Ontario families are paying some of the highest electricity bills in the country. Instead of making life affordable, the Liberals decided to add an unfair tax on top of that. We’re going to take it off and make life affordable for families,” said Horwath. “The NDP is focused on creating good jobs, making life affordable, improving healthcare and respecting people’s tax dollars. That’s change that makes sense for families.”
