Hydro march on Queen's Park to take place today

A march on Queen's Park is planned for today to demand the Ontario government halt the privatization of Hydro One.

Organizers say the march will involve community groups, labour organizations, small business owners and residents.

The Keep Hydro Public group says the march is also in support of those facing high electricity bills, and forced to choose between food and heat.

Data released last month shows the Liberal government proceeded with the privatization of Hydro One even though its own polling showed the move was deeply unpopular.
