Horwath will make an announcement related to hydro bills this afternoon, at a news conference to be held at a New Sudbury home. She will be joined by Sudbury candidate Joe Cimino, who's trying to win the seat vacated by Liberal MPP Rick Bartolucci.
"Today, I announced our plan to save you money by taking the HST off home hydro bills," Horwath said on her Facebook page. "It will save your family an average of $120 per year. Combined with our plan to end the Debt Retirement Charge, the Ontario NDP will save you nearly $200."
Horwath will join Cimino later for a rally downtown at the Best Western. The June 12 election in Ontario was called after Horwath decided not to support the Liberal's spring budget. Wynne has a minority government, and trails Hudak in the polls, followed by Horwath.
While still early, no party has yet emerged with enough support for a majority government. Ridings in Northern Ontario are largely held by the NDP or the Liberals, with the exception of Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli, a Tory.
Paula Peroni is running for the Tories in Sudbury, Andrew Olivier for the Liberals and Casey Lalonde for the Greens.
