Save The Bala Falls wants Premier Doug Ford to hear them out on ways to cancel the Bala Falls Hydro Plant without getting sued.
The group’s spokesperson Mitchell Shnier says Ford hasn’t received the right information on the issue and that cancelling the plant could save the province $70 million.
Schnier says Ontario has the power to follow Save the Bala Falls’ advice if it wants to.
He adds that the Ford government is dealing with a $15 billion deficit and has to save money.
Schnier says the government has announced that there’s already enough power for the next 10 years and that the government would be paying above market rates for power generated at the new power plant, which he says is “unnecessary.”
