Hudak Wants Flat-Rate Energy Pricing Option, Renewed Nuclear Strategy

Trying to build off the momentum gained by the missteps made by the Liberal party this past summer, Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak is beginning to outline his Energy Strategy bit by bit.  Hudak told the Ontario Energy Association last Thursday that Ontarians should have a flat-rate electricity pricing option alongside Dalton McGuinty’s.

The Long-Term Effects of the Green Energy Act Failure

New Poll Places PC Leader Tim Hudak in the Lead for 2011
