Auditor general says hydro consumers paid billions extra due to Liberal decisions

The Ontario Power Authority’s 20-year technical plan, which was updated every three years and reviewed by the Ontario Energy Board, would have offered protection to consumers, said Lysyk.

“Instead of following the legislated process, the Ministry of Energy itself effectively assumed responsibility for electricity planning,” she said.
