Ontario Electricity Regulation Crisis Report – Part 34: Tony’s Hydro (formerly Toronto Hydro) Cranks Up Unplanned Downsizing

At 1 pm this afternoon, Tony’s Hydro (formerly Toronto Hydro), under the leadership of rogue CEO Anthony Haines, Canada’s highest paid municipal employee, will announce an initiative to package off 450 unionized staff members. The unplanned downsizing at Tony’s Hydro is now reaching the stage where routine utility operations such as storm recovery, new customer attachments, and coordination of capital work with other utilities sharing underground infrastructure are likely to be impacted. The Ontario Energy Board must monitor closely the utility’s capacity to meet the requirements of section 9.1 of its license.

Post script (2:30 pm) Tony’s Hydro is offering 18 month packages with the workers gone by March.

  1. It’s time for refunds
    and credits when there are power outages. We’ve had two that infringed on the
    so-called ‘off-peak’ period. That robbed us of the ability to use this time for
    essential activities around the house. And why are we paying these high rates to
    subsidize Toronto’s ‘green initiatives’ with such things as coupons for
    discounts on clotheslines, power cables, bulbs, cold water detergent. Then
    there’s the software app they want you to use to monitor your daily use online
    and the promotional material mailed several times to customers going on to
    time-of-use metering. How much money was spent on that? My usage costs are below
    the ‘add-ons’ on the bill. Then, on top of it is HST.
