Time for an Open and Transparent Rate Mitigation Plan: Crosbie

St. John’s, NL (July 25, 2018) – Today, Progressive Conservative Leader Ches Crosbie is calling for an open and transparent rate mitigation plan which can keep energy rates affordable in Newfoundland and Labrador.

“Under the Ball Liberals, Newfoundlanders and Labradorians are living in fear of being unable to pay their power bills while also dealing with the government’s high-tax economic agenda,” said Crosbie

“We need to implement the best possible plan to keep energy rates affordable.”

To accomplish this, Crosbie is reiterating his call to restore confidence in our democratic institutions by referring the issues of energy rate mitigation to the Public Utilities Board.

“While the Ball Liberals choose to play politics with people’s pocketbook — including leaving all discussions to closed-door backroom meetings — our Progressive Conservative Party believes that these decisions need to be made in an open and transparent process,” said Crosbie

“By referring these matters to the Public Utilities Board, ratepayer representatives will be able to have their voices heard and ensure that a decision is made in the best interests of all Newfoundlanders and Labradorians.”

Crosbie refers to the failure of the Ball Liberals to deal with this issue since being elected in the 2015 General Election.

“Despite being in office for three years, the Ball Liberals have refused to take action or lay out a clear plan to keep rates low,” added Crosbie

“A referral to the PUB will make an impartial recommendation that can give the needed guidance that the Ball Liberals clearly do not have.”
