A new Mainstreet Technologies poll of 2,445 Ontarians finds strong disapproval for the privatization of Hydro One and the Ontario Liberals trailing the Progressive Conservatives with either Christine Elliot or Patrick Brown as leader. The poll carries an overall margin of error of +/- 1.98%, 19/20.
“Ontarians think the Province is selling too much of Hydro One and don’t approve of selling 60% – even when told the proceeds will fund transit” said Quito Maggi, president of Mainstreet Technologies. “77% of Ontarians expect the sale will result in higher prices.”
Mainstreet ran a separate poll of PC Party members using publicly available data on PC party donors from the last 10 years and found Patrick Brown leading with 62%.
“In an update to our PC leadership poll, we find Patrick Brown expanding his lead with 63%. Followed by Christine Elliott at 31% and the undecided now down to just 6%” finished Maggi.
– 77% of Ontarians believe the privatization of Hydro One will result in higher prices
– 61% disapprove of the privatization of Hydro One
– Both Christine Elliot and Patrick Brown lead Kathleen Wynne’s Liberals by 9% and 7% respectively – within the margin of error
