The Speech from the Throne comes with promises of relief on your hydro bill. The Liberal Government today announced Ontario’s 8% slice of the HST would be taken off electricity bills. That should balance out to about $130 in savings a year on the average Ontario household, while rural homes could save $540 a year with this new plan. This is a 180 from nine months ago, when Ontario scrapped the Clean Energy Benefit that provided a 10 per cent reduction on electricity bills. The Throne Speech opened the fall session of the legislature, and also came with a commitment to create another 100,000 child care spaces, and more emphasis on grade school math classes to after a steady decline in test scores of late.
