Pledges power to municipalities

Ontario PC Leader Tim Hudak wants decision making to be placed back in the hands of municipal leaders and told a large crowd of them he’ll do it if he’s the province’s next premier.

Hudak addressed issues such as the Green Energy Act and Local Health Integration Networks during his speech at the Association of Municipalities of Ontario conference Tuesday.

A press release from Hudak’s office highlighting his comments said the Green Energy Act currently allows bureaucrats at the Ontario Power Authority to “arbitrarily override democratically elected municipal governments” when it comes to building energy projects.

“Any government I lead will empower local decision making,” Hudak stated in the release. “Your voters put their faith in you to make the best decisions for your local communities. So should your premier. That’s why we are going to restore the decision-making powers the Green Energy Act took away.”
