NewsMPP Agrees With Katula About The Price of Hydro SHARE ON: Kaitlin Livingston, contributor, Thursday, Jan. 19th, 2017Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock MPP Laurie Scott says she is not surprised by stories from her constituents about the high price they are paying for hydro. During his Canada wide town hall meetings, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau got an earful from Buckhorn resident Kathy Katula. She told the PM she is facing poverty because of the cost to heat her home. She says the cost is over $1,000 a month which is more than her mortgage payments. MPP Scott says energy poverty is real, and people are depending on loans more and more. She is blaming the high cost of hydro on Premier Wynne, and she is looking for action to bring the cost down.
