I would like to object to the Hydro One Network's application to increase hydro delivery charges to their customers.

It is difficult to understand why this would be happening during a time when the whole country is in a recession.

In the Northwestern part of this province, the Forest Industry has virtually closed down leaving thousands unemployed & struggling to exist. The last thing we need is an increase in a vital necessity such as heating & electricity.

In this same area, Seniors are unable to sell their homes due to the recession & find it almost impossible to keep up with the cost of living in their own homes. These are people who have worked hard all their life and do not deserve this in their latter years of life.

Let the corporate greed stop now & show some compassion.

Yours truly,

The Oliphants, Pat & Gerry
