Keep Hydro Public

Bought and paid for with our taxes, Hydro One generates hundreds of millions every year for schools, hospitals and other vital public institutions and services in our communities.

Should 39% of voters decide who gets 100% of the power?
In the last two elections, our outdated voting system allowed a party to win 100% of the power with just 39% of the vote. As a result, millions of votes effectively didn’t count and too many Canadian voices aren’t heard in Ottawa.
The solution is simple – if a party gets 39% of the vote, they should get 39% of the seats in our Parliament.
