Cold facts take the heat out of Ontario's electricity debate

In an op-ed for The Globe and Mail, Ivey's Brandon Schaufele joins forces with the University of Ottawa's Nicholas Rivers and Stewart Elgie to explain the rationale behind Ontario's recent policy shift in electricity prices. 

"Was this move influenced by politics? No doubt. Ontarians have been demanding electricity price relief. But that shouldn’t distract us from fairly weighing merits of the Fair Hydro Plan. The truth is: it is economically sensible to pay off the costs of energy infrastructure over a 30-to-40-year period, because that is a time frame over which we will use and benefit from it."
