Ford Promises To Fire Hydro One CEO

The Conservatives are promising a shake-up at the top of Hydro One.

In a statement released yesterday, PC leader Doug Ford says he would fire the president and CEO of the utility, who makes 6 million dollars a year.

Premier Kathleen Wynne says she's not sure what that move would accomplish.

"I have no idea how that will help any person in the province of Ontario.  The reality is that will not take one cent off of anyone's electricity bill".  

The Conservatives says their first action, if they form the next government would be to fire the entire board of Hydro One.
