WINDSOR – Steven Del Duca pledged to get to the bottom of the Ford Conservative’s energy cuts and failures which led directly to the loss of LG Chem’s planned $2.5 billion investment in Windsor.
“Windsor’s manufacturing industry is an engine that drives Ontario’s economy. The fact that Invest WindsorEssex was just two weeks ago comparing the region’s lack of electricity capacity to “a Third World country” – and is now claiming local power supply is not an issue – does nothing to build confidence for current and future investors,” Del Duca said.
“Ontario Liberals will ask the Independent Electricity Systems Operator (IESO) to conduct and release an independent review into the warnings the Premier ignored, and his cuts, delays and indecision that led to Windsor being unable to provide the 15 megawatts of power required by LG Chem in 2024,” Del Duca pledged.
“Ontario Liberals will fix Windsor’s electricity shortage, get to the bottom of what happened with LG Chem, and reveal the true state of the region’s energy supply so investors have the confidence they deserve,” Del Duca continued.
