When: Tuesday 19 May 2015, 6:30 PM
This is a Town Hall meeting to discuss the importance of keeping Hydro public
Take action now to stop the privatization of Hydro One! Sign up for a public hearing and encourage your co-workers, friends and family to as well! Details here: http://us7.campaign-archive1.com/…
URGENT: Your help is needed today to stop the privatization of Hydro One. The Liberals want to push it through with only minimal public hearings by the Finance Committee on Bill 91, the new budget legislation that includes the plan to sell Hydro One.
We’re asking you, right now, to take a few minutes to email the Clerk of the Finance Committee to say you want to be heard by making a presentation.
IF you get to present at a hearing, CUPE Ontario will support you 100% to get ready – and it’s honestly not that hard – Fred does it all the time!
The more requests the government gets, the harder it will be to refuse to hold province-wide hearings. And, if province wide hearings happen, we know there will be hundreds, even thousands showing up to say “DON’T PRIVATIZE HYDRO ONE.”
Here’s what you need to do:
Send an email from your personal email account to Mr. Katch Koch, Clerk of the Standing Committee on Finance. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Say you want to make an in-person presentation about Bill 91 to the Finance Committee at a public hearing in your community.
You must include your full name, home mailing address, and home or cell telephone number. If you’d like to also make this request by phone, the number is 416-325-3526.
It’s important the Liberal government hears from Ontario citizens like you before they sell off Ontario Hydro.
Please take a minute to do this right now. The Government will probably be making decisions this week about public hearings and we need to generate pressure to make sure they do not restrict hearings to a couple days at Queen’s Park in Toronto.
Remember, your effort WILL make a difference.
