A new Environics poll says 93 per cent of Peterborough residents don’t want their locally owned utility sold to private investors.
The poll was commissioned by CUPE Ontario. At a press conference outside City Hall on Wednesday morning, the results were announced.
The poll was meant to gauge people’s attitudes about a proposed sale of Peterborough Distribution Inc. (PDI) to Hydro One.
“The people of Peterborough were clearly, squarely and firmly against it,” said Fred Hahn, president of CUPE Ontario.
Environics conducted a telephone survey of 762 Peterborough residents on April 28.
