Liberal "Power" Meeting Tonight On South Shore

Stephen McNeil
More choice, more competition and more protection from the power monopoly. Thats how the province's Liberal leader Stephen McNeil sums-up the feedback he's been getting from Nova Scotians on his "Power Tour" across the province. The latest installment comes to the South Shore this evening. McNeil will hold a town hall-style meeting to discuss high power rates and his plan for eliminating NS Power's monopoly and those rate hikes which he says are jeopardizing the financial well-being of ratepayers.

Tonight's public meeting will be held at the Oak Hill Fire Hall starting at 7 o'clock. McNeil says similar sessions are planned, even after the utility and review board hearing on September 13th into Nova Scotia Power's application for power rate hikes in 2013 and 14.
