The Ottawa West-Nepean NDP Executive is pleased to announce, following a comprehensive candidate search as mandated by the Ontario NDP, that we have recruited a stellar candidate – Chandra Pasma, a longtime New Democrat who lives in our community and brings policy expertise to this election (see her biography) – to represent the NDP in Ottawa West-Nepean in the forthcoming provincial election.
Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and her cabinet have embarked on a scheme to privatize Hydro One, the electrical utility that serves most of the province.
- Drive our rates even higher (since Ottawa Hydro buys most of its power from Hydro One, any Hydro One rate hikes will be passed to us).
- Reduce the amount that Ontario can invest in its schools, roads, and hospitals by hundreds of millions of dollars. Every year. Forever.
- Increase Ontario's greenhouse gas emissions.
