Penny pinchers

I was listening to the radio station CFRA talk shows like I always do from Monday to Friday mornings. Some times the things I hear on there are unbelievable. According to the host of one of the talk shows this morning, he had some good news to tell the people of Ontario. It was also in the Ottawa Citizen this morning. The good news from Ottawa Hydro was that their hydro bill would be reduced by five cents a month starting next year.

Hey I’m moving back to Ontario look what I can save in a month that’s 60 cents a year Imagine that. Those penny pinching Liberals running that province.

This really shows what a bunch of penny pinchers they are. I wonder if this is going to get McGuinty re-elected? This is what I can’t understand in Ontario they generate so much hydro that they have to pay the province of Quebec to take some off their hands and I understand that they do the same with a certain state of the USA.

Instead of paying other provinces and states to take some power, why don’t they reduce the price of hydro and give their customers a break? That's a pretty simple idea.

I’ve compared a couple of my hydro bills with those of a friend of mine in Ottawa. I have to say that I don’t live in a mansion but I still use hydro. Here I have a regular stove, a refrigerator and a microwave. There are two computers that are on 24 hours a day. There are 2 lights that are on 24 hours a day. There are two TV’s on almost 24 hrs a day. I have a gas furnace that's on in the winter but in the summer there's an air conditioner that's on a reasonable amount. The only time that my hydro bill was just a little over 200.00 was when I had forgotten to pay my previous bill. Usually my hydro bill for 60 days period is always well under $134.00 In the winter it's typically around $224 To $235. When I showed this to my friend I thought that he would have a heart attack.

Quite a few times it was mentioned on the Lowell Green show that Ontario should take their Hydro from Quebec. According to some who called in to this show they would be all for it. Except the rotten Ontario Liberals are saying that they would have to run other lines from Quebec and all kinds of other excuses. Mr. Green also compared the prices by kilowatt hours and how much people could save on their hydro bill if Ottawa would get their hydro from Quebec. Some people have called in from Cornwall Ontario bragging about their Hydro bill and the savings because they get their hydro from Quebec. Quebec already have lines on the border of Ottawa ready to supply Ottawa with hydro.

I don’t think that would ever happen because those fat cats would not be making as much money.
“Imagine” a big 5 cents off a hydro bill. That just goes to show how much they love the money. In the mean time they don’t think about the poor families that can’t afford it or are starving just because of money hungry people. These poor families have to scrape the bottom of their pockets just to pay hydro. There’s no need for that. I realize that any private business or government has to have money to keep up the business, but when there is another way of obtaining hydro that can be passed on to people at a cheaper price and its not being done because of greed (yes, I said greed), then those people should not be in business because they are of no use to anyone except

That is my rant of the day.
